COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of all stars symposia in 2020 and 2021 including those two foreseen in Shenzhen where we wanted to continue the annual stars China symposia previously held in Chengdu and Chongqing since 2015. Realizing that 2022 will be another year without reasonable possibilities for physical interactions with friends and experts in China, we have prepared a China-dedicated webinar series with seven webinars taking place between May and September 2022. SwissCham is happy to cooperate with Stars, the French Chamber (CCI France Chine), the Benelux Chamber (BenCham) and the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) as well as with Caixin Global as media partner and the China Macro Group as knowledge partner.
To kick this series off, stars Switzerland Alumni Chapter President Markus HERRMANN, Managing Director, China Macro Group (CMG) and the moderator of the series, will be talking to HE Ambassador Nicolas CHAPUIS, head of the delegation of the European Union to the People's Republic of China in Beijing. A Sinologist by training and with working experience on the ground for the French diplomatic service in various capacities both in Shanghai and Beijing, Ambassador Chapuis has had a long and distinguished diplomatic career engaging with China. In complex times like these, with challenges in EU-China relations ranging from trade issues around Lithuania, sanctions on both sides, a stalled investment agreement and now China's role in the Russian war in Ukraine, his diplomatic skill is needed more than ever.
Given the dynamic Covid-situation in Beijing, it is presumed that the originally foreseen physical event hosting Ambassador Chapuis at the European Business Centre in Beijing cannot take place – should there be any change in the situation, SwissCham Beijing and Shanghai together with the French, Benelux and EUCCC Chamber Partners will communicate directly and manage access to the limited seats.
Kindly note: All webinars of this series are held under Chatham House Rules, will not be recorded, and there will be an entry control.
