Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

Switzerland and China have a long-standing bilateral relationship and strong economic ties. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted many channels of communication. As the world is slowly recovering from the pandemic, Swiss government officials and business people are now re-connecting with their Chinese counterparts and re-shaping their relationships. What are the main challenges in the process?

The event will consist of three parts – a briefing by the Swiss Ambassador, presentations from senior executives of Richemont & Clariant, and a panel discussion.

  1. Ambassador's Briefing: A presentation by the Swiss Ambassador to China, Jürg Burri, discussing the current status of the bilateral relationship between Switzerland and China, and their future perspectives.
  2. Companies Presentations: Jenny Gu, CEO of Richemont China and Andy Walti, VP, Head of Region China & APAC at Clariant will share their experiences in re-connecting with business partners and headquarters and their views on doing business in China.
  3. Panel Discussion: A moderated panel discussion with the Ambassador and the business representatives discussing the future prospects and challenges in bilateral relation­ship between Switzerland and China.

The event will close with a buffet dinner, where participants can further network and share their insights and experiences with the guests and the Ambassador.

Please note that participants of this event have to meet the below two requirements:

  1. Participation to this event is limited to representatives of Swiss companies and Swiss individuals only.
