In partnership with the Swiss Embassy in Beijing, China Center for Information and Industry Development (CCID) and venturelab, Swiss Center Tianjin organized the Sino-Swiss Business Roundtable, hosted by Tianjin Municipal Government, Tianjin City Government and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) at Tianjin Meijiang Convention Center on June 27th.

The Roundtable was the first parallel session of the World Intelligence Congress. In attendance were 130 participants from both Swiss and Chinese industry, government and associations.

“The core of ‘Made in China 2025’ and ‘Swiss Industry 4.0’ is to organize production via informatization and intellectual technology, which can not only keep working for 24 hours 365 days of the year, but also eliminate all man-made interference,” said Wang Jun, president of Oerlikon China. “The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area has a big potential market,” Wang said. “There is a great possibility for us to cooperate in research and development innovation, technology application and manufacturing.”

At the forum, guests also discussed the opportunities and challenges both Chinese and Swiss enterprises will face with against the backdrop of “Made in China 2025” in line with the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province. Both the Made in China 2025 strategy and Tianjin’s intelligent port will provide great opportunities to the companies from both sides to further strengthen cooperation.
