Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
On the occasion of the official visit to China of the Head of the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research, His Excellency Federal Councillor Johann N. Schneider-Ammann, SwissCham Beijing, in association with the Embassy of Switzerland in the People’s Republic of China, is delighted to announce the 5th edition of the Sino-Swiss Economic Forum. The Sino-Swiss Economic Forum 2018 (SSEF 2018) will focus on the topic of free trade today and in the future. Four years after the entry into force of the Free Trade Agreement between Switzerland and China (FTA), trade flows between the two countries have been growing robustly and the number of companies making use of the FTA is increasing to reap even more benefits in the future, the two countries have committed themselves to a further enhancement of the FTA on the occasion of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s State visit to Switzerland in January 2017.
The SSEF 2018 builds a platform for high level experts from various disciplines, such as business, economics, politics, architecture, future studies and art. Two panel discussions in the afternoon will focus on the potentials of free trade on specific markets and take a broader look into the future.
We remain at your disposal should you have any questions and are looking forward to seeing you there!
With best regards,
Your SwissCham Team
