In the south east of Asia, Hong Kong is located on the eastern side of the Pearl River Delta. The territory was a British colony since 1842 and returned to China in 1997. Since this date, Hong Kong is called The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Half independent, half Chinese, the region has 50 years to become fully integrated into China. Hong Kong is completely embedded in the Anglo-Saxon culture, whether it concerns business, politics, traditions or daily-living. Under the "One country, two systems" policy, Hong Kong is ruled like an Anglo-Saxon country and the People's Republic of China is only militarily and diplomatically represented. Hong Kong is known as the world's most liberal economy and will profit from its very high degree of autonomy until at least 2047. For example, English will remain Hong Kong's official language for decades. Nevertheless, China gets everyday more influence on the city and it is obvious that dramatic changes will happen in the next decades, in politics for example. So far, the Chief Executive, the head of territory and head of government, has always been selected by the Chief Executive Election Committee composed of 800 members, but it was decided in 1997 that a condition of the return of Hong Kong to China was the organization of democratic elections. But the media, and especially the government official Chinese newspapers like The South China Morning Post or the China Daily, give proofs everyday that this is very unlikely to happen.

[...] But it became clear during my internship that the inspection report is above all a communication tool. Louxor Limited has always wanted to be transparent with its clients and to show them its way of working, and I think this is the main role of the inspection report. But the final decision is not so often hard to take. Louxor Limited makes great efforts when choosing its factories and working with them before they produce, and it is very rare that the goods need to be rejected Orders follow-up After the goods have been accepted, they are shipped to France and Europe from Shanghai, Hong Kong or smaller harbours and airports like Shenzhen and Hangzhou, and arrive a few weeks later. [...]

[...] It makes it live. But managing timing in China is very uneasy, and the quality controller has often very tight deadlines that do not allow any delay. Sometimes, thousands of dollars depend on his ability to reach the factories in a minimum of time. The intern at Louxor Limited has been recruited for its ability, among others, to manage timing when tripping in China. Timing management requires organization and adaptation skills, and the ability to work in stressful conditions and environments. [...]

[...] ii. Project management Thanks to the creation of the Louxor Limited website, I developed different skills. I think the most important of them is the capacity to manage projects from the first idea until the practical implementation. In addition, working on the creation of a website was stressful at different levels and I had to deal with it. First, I was fully responsible of the project and I could not imagine failing. Second, I had always to go and see people to gather the information I needed. [...]
