The outbreak of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, had such a large impact on China and the world that we devoted most of the content to this topic. We invited the China consultancy Sinolytics to give us their view when discussing the post-virus economy in China and how foreign companies can take advantage of the latest government initiatives. We also reached out to Swiss companies present in China to see how they manage the challenges and embrace new opportunities. In the last part of the magazine, we list our past webinars, events and above all our new member lists. Given the constant number of new members, it is encouraging to see that SwissCham is perceived as a valuable network that can support companies in the Chinese market. We wish you an interesting read.
Thank you for supporting SwissCham and we wish you a nice read!
The Free Trade Agreement between Switzerland and China came into effect in July 2014.
A lot has changed since we published our first edition of the Development Zone Directory back in 2017.

While it is true that companies and countries are relocating or building up additional supply chains to lessen their dependence on China, it is also a fact that no other country has the industrial capacity, growing middle class and growth potential.
