Swiss Innovation Parks Cooperating with China

Innovation parks in Switzerland and China are seeking to cooperate closely. In so doing, high-tech firms in China would look to set up subsidiaries in Switzerland. At the same time, new opportunities would be opened up for innovative Swiss companies in China. Plans have been drawn up for innovation parks in Switzerland and China to cooperate in future. The relevant Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by Switzerland Innovation and the Torch Center of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China, details of which can be found in a press release. The Torch Center is the Chinese counterpart of Switzerland Innovation, helping to coordinate around 170 “High-Tech Development Zones” across the country. These are innovation parks designed to attract high-tech companies and capital in addition to establishing innovation networks. The overarching aim of the collaboration is to promote exchanges between the innovation parks in Switzerland and China. According to Switzerland Innovation, some of the high-tech Chinese firms will also set up subsidiaries in Switzerland, where they will then have the opportunity to drive forward innovation projects together with Swiss universities and companies. At the same time, the collaboration will also open up new opportunities for Swiss firms seeking to establish a presence in the Chinese market.

ABB to Power Latest Electric Motor Products in China

ABB Motion, a business unit of the Swiss technology and engineering company ABB Group, plans to introduce more of its latest electric motor products in China to respond to the government’s call to pursue green and high-quality development, said its top executive. With China setting a target to combat climate change by speeding up reductions in emissions to reach carbon neutrality before 2060, measures to improve energy efficiency will play a vital role in helping industry and infrastructure to reduce their emissions, said Morten Wierod, president of ABB Motion. While mostly hidden from public view, electric motors are embedded in almost every built environment. They power a vast range of applications fundamental to modern life, he said. China has recognized the importance of efficient electric motors as a matter of policy, with a new national standard requiring motors to have a minimum efficiency level of IE3 coming into effect on June 1, 2021. “As one of the earliest countries to sign the Paris Agreement, China has made a strong commitment to address climate change,” said Morten Wierod, President of ABB Motion. “This latest legislation on electric motor efficiency is an important new step in driving down emissions.

Cross-cultural 3D Design Competition Celebrates Sino-Swiss Diplomatic Relations

A technology-powered 3D design competition launched in 2020 to mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Switzerland and China revealed its winners at the Embassy of Switzerland in China in Beijing.  A total of 12 3D design works were submitted by contestants from both China and Switzerland. Each of the works embraced the competition’s main theme of interpreting the connection between the two countries through art. The final two winners were Chinese designer Yao Zhihao and Swiss designer Noelani Rutz. Yao created the geometrically aesthetic 3D sculpture Rising, which merges visual symbols such as Switzerland’s iconic Matterhorn and seven triangular structures to imply qualities such as “universally shared natural legacy” and “balance and stability.” The triangles are intertwined and staggered one above each other to deliver an almost anti-gravity visual sense. The event was co-organized by the Embassy of Switzerland in China and two top cultural institutions -Switzerland’s écolecantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL) and China’s The Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University.

Giant Panda-themed Art Exhibition Held in Chengdu

A giant panda-themed art exhibition kicked off at the Chengdu Giant Panda Research Base, amid the 45th International Museum Day and the reopening of China’s first international panda art center following almost eight months of closure because of the COVID-19 epidemic. Young artists from China and Switzerland were involved. The exhibition aims to demonstrate the cross-cultural and trans-regional communication of the giant panda culture, and to explore the diverse and fashionable artistic expression of young artists from different cultural backgrounds, so that young people in China and abroad can feel emotional resonance from cultural exchange activities. Works by three artists are being displayed in three exhibition halls and one multimedia hall. Five works by Antonio Wehrli from Switzerland are being displayed in the first hall, including oil paintings that took several months to be completed, one employee at the base told the Global Times.

Interview: Swiss Engineering Giant ABB Ramps Up Robotics Business in China: Chairman

The chairman of Swiss technology and engineering firm ABB told Xinhua he was bullish about his company’s performance outlook for 2021 driven by its China business and strong push into robotics and e-mobility. “The first quarter (Q1) of this year was better than expected, both in revenue terms but also in profit terms,” Peter Voser told Xinhua on the side-lines of the 50th St. Gallen Symposium, a conference and student initiative taking place at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland in May every year. ABB, headquartered in Zurich, is a global technology and robotics leader with some 110,000 employees worldwide. In Q1, the company reported a 34% year-on-year jump in its net profit to 502 million U.S. dollars and expects orders and revenues to grow by more than 10 percent during the second quarter. “So all in all, I think a positive outlook for the second quarter, and then for the rest of the year. But there we haven’t given any numeric targets at this stage, but we are more positive than we used to be at the beginning of the year,” he said in the interview. China is ABB’s second largest market worldwide. Headquartered in Beijing, the company has around 15,000 employees in the country. Voser said the group’s China strategy is focused on an “in China, for China and the world” approach, which entails improving its local research and development (R&D) and innovation capabilities. “We are continuously investing in China,” Voser said. “Our biggest project at the moment is the new robot factory, which is also an R&D center and an automation artificial intelligence (AI) center for robotics, so it’s the value chain in which we are investing now.”

China’s New Cybersecurity Law: Managing Risks and Legal Issues

Tuesday, May 23, 2017
2017年5月23日
18:30 – 21:00
@ Sofitel Shanghai Hyland

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

The Legal Committee of SwissCham Shanghai is delighted to invite you to our upcoming event about China’s new cybersecurity law. We have invited speakers and panelists from Control Risks and Taylor Wessing to provide you an overview of what this new law means for you and your company.

Presentation by Control Risks:
The new cybersecurity law comes into force on June 1, 2017, which will concern a wide range of industries and leave many companies unsure about how the law will affect their business.

The new law mandates cybersecurity obligations and duties for network operators. Core provisions include defining critical information infrastructure (CII), mandating a national security review of CII cybersecurity systems and technology, and making rules to protect and localise personal and important data.

Carly Ramsey will brief on the operational implications of the new cybersecurity law and provide guidance on determining who/what is CII, which data needs to be localised and what steps you can take now to start mitigating these risks.

Presentation by Taylor Wessing:

The new PRC Cybersecurity Law will take its effect soon. Enactment of this law was already a controversial process which took a long time after 3 rounds of legislative review. This law reflects China’s increase concern over national security, which no question has a big impact on foreign companies’ operation in China. A widely discussed issue connected with this law is data local storage requirement.

Another issue of concern is the obligation of companies to cooperate with governmental agencies to facilitate invasive audit or investigation during law enforcement. Besides this law, there are more follow-up moves e.g. by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) to be watched upon.

In this seminar, Michael Tan will discuss 1) a quick overview of the legislative picture including this new law and related ministerial moves; 2) practical issues and implications which concerns your operation in China; 3) best industrial practice and recommendations.

Best Regards,

Your SwissCham Team
