The afternoon will be divided into two complementary parts.

First, you will hear the results of this year’s Swiss Business in China Survey, a unique field survey conducted since 2006 that aims to take the pulse of the Swiss economy in China. Its results are not only informative but also allow to concretely equip those who do business in China, an attractive but complex market. The 2023 edition is conducted by the Swiss Centers, the University of St. Gallen and China Integrated and supported by the Swiss Embassy in China, economiesuisse, swissnex, Switzerland Global Enterprise, SwissCham China and the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce.
