Switzerland and China Intensify Cooperation in the Area of Water Management

by swisscham in Bilateral Relations

Switzerland and China are particularly severely affected by the impacts of climate change on water management. For this reason, they are extending their cooperation in this area. Representatives of both countries have signed a corresponding agreement at a high-level meeting in Crans- Montana. Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard and the Chinese Vice Minister of Water Resources Hu Siyi highlighted the importance of this cooperation. At the opening of the 6th Sino-Swiss High-level Dialogue on Water Management, Federal Councillor Leuthard expressed her satisfaction with the existing cooperation between China and Switzerland. She highlighted the existential importance of clean water and its efficient use. Switzerland has already achieved a lot in this regard, however, further efforts are needed, for example in the area of micropollutants. Ms Leuthard also stressed that, in view of excessive water consumption throughout the world and the lack of access to drinking water for millions of people, sustainable water management is also important at global level. For this reason, she greatly welcomes the cooperation between Switzerland and China in this area. The countries shall continue to benefit from their mutual experience in the future
