Highlighting current trends, Swiss Ambassador Dr. Jean-Jacques de Dardel will provide a comprehensive overview of the state of Sino-Swiss affairs—domestically, bilaterally and regionally.

Some of the questions that you may send us in advance HERE will be addressed during the subsequent Q&A session. We will then continue the discussion around a buffet dinner and a glass of wine.

With best regards,
