The Sino-Swiss Relations are Avant Garde

by swisscham in Bilateral Relations

This year China and Switzerland is celebrating 65th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations between two countries. It is a great opportunity to talk about relations between two countries, as well as major issues such as the Free Trade Agreement, human rights and climate change, etc. The Ambassador of China in Switzerland Ms. XU Jinghu is interviewed by swissinfo.ch. Switzerland was one of the first Western countries to recognize the PeopleÕs Republic of China in January 1950. This decision was both pragmatic and visionary. Berne and Beijing “have in general a healthy and stable relationship which is currently even at the best time in the history”, said XU Jinghu, Ambassador of China in Switzerland since 2013. The first joint venture that was set up between a Chinese and a foreign company was established with the Swiss company Schindler, in 1980. Switzerland is the first Western country to recognize China as a market economy in 2007. It is also the first with a top 20 world economy that signed the Free Trade Agreement with China. In March, Switzerland signed the document marking the countryÕs participation in the founding process of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
