[SUPPORTED EVENT]Exploration Trip to the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle
April 26 - April 28
Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
Due to the unexpected Covid-19 outbreak in Chengdu and Chongqing in November 2021, the Exploration Trip to the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle was suspended. BUT NOW WE ARE ON IT AGAIN!
SwissCham is very happy to re-invite you to this exciting trip organized by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Chengdu together with Sichuan Provincial Bureau of Economic Cooperation and Chongqing Municipal Commission of Commerce.
Join us for an exciting exploration trip to the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle! It is your opportunity to learn about the economic and industrial development of the southwest of China, to meet with local government officials, to build connections with potential business partners, and to get first-hand experience with Swiss companies already in the region. With abundant natural resources, solid industrial foundation, and a vast talent pool, the dual city economic circle, as the fourth pillar region of China, presents numerous opportunities for Swiss businesses looking for new growth and expansions.
RSVP now and join us to explore the western regions with your peers. We look forward to seeing you here.
Your SwissCham Team
