China is challenging Europe, the USA and also Switzerland. Switzerland has maintained intensive diplomatic and economic contacts with the world power China for decades. Recent developments such as the Syngenta acquisition and the New Silk Road project fuel reservations about China. What are the sensible strategies of Swiss companies and institutions in their exchange with China? Swiss China Update 2018 is investigating this question.
Participants receive the latest facts, insights from experts and the opportunity for exchange. The event is intended as a knowledge and networking event for all those interested in China and aims to contribute to the development of a genuine win-win partnership between China and Switzerland.
