In our newest edition of the Bridge magazine, we featured two exclusive interviews. The first one was conducted with Kevin Zhang, Vice President and Country Manager of Swiss implant and esthetic dentistry leader Straumann. Kevin Zhang talks about the company’s latest investment in China, which is a RMB 1.2 billion campus that is home to a manufacturing, education and innovation center.
We also interviewed Dimitri Getsios, who is the Managing Director APAC of Swiss Post Solutions. SPS recently entered the Chinese market through an acquisition.
In addition, we have a contribution from Josipa Markovic, who is an Economist with Swiss Life Asset Managers. Josipa discusses China’s economic development, the dual circulation and the growth potential of the second largest economy in the world.
We hope you enjoy reading this issue of the Bridge.
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. But China remains one of the top investment hotspots in the world, despite ongoing trade and other disputes the country faces. 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.
