China-Switzerland FTA a ‘Strong Signal’ Against Protectionism

by swisscham in Bilateral Relations

The just-signed free trade agreement (FTA) between China and Switzerland sent the world a strong signal against trade protectionism and will serve as a positive example for China-Europe cooperation, Premier LI Keqiang said Saturday. The FTA, the first of this kind inked between China and a country in continental Europe, is a milestone in the China-Switzerland relations, LI said during his meeting with Swiss Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann. Schneider-Ammann and Chinese Commerce Minister GAO Hucheng signed the trade pact Saturday in Beijing, after over two years of negotiations and legal processes. Li said advancing freedom and convenience in trade and investment could be “a good remedy” for the difficult recovery of the global economy.
