After a first successful edition in 2013, the Sino-Swiss Business Awards 2015 have announced the winners of its second edition during an exclusive gala evening held at the Rosewood Beijing. More than 280 guests attended the event in the frame of the 65th anniversary of the establishment of Sino-Swiss diplomatic relations, including top economic and political leaders from both Switzerland and China. This year again, a member of the Federal Council, the highest authority of Switzerland, honoured the Ceremony with his presence: His Excellency, Federal Councillor Alain Berset, Head of the Federal Department of Home Affairs.
“In life, we tend to take a lot of things for granted, but perseverance, innovation, vision and entrepreneurship should not be treated as such. These are a few of many words that describe a number of Swiss companies, large and small, which have demonstrated success in their business ventures in China. This can be equally said of Chinese companies and organizations that are making their mark in further increasing bilateral trade and investment ties” affirmed H.E. Ambassador Jean-Jacques de Dardel in his welcome message. “It is my great pleasure to stand here on the occasion of Sino-Swiss Business Awards 2015, congratulations to all the finalists, you are the best publicity for the economic cooperation between our two countries”, stated H.E.
