IDHEAP delegation from the University of Lausanne visited Swiss Center Shanghai last Friday. The group of 35 IDHEAP Alumni were on a Study Trip to China to gain understanding of its public sector while taking a glimpse into the fast-growing economy.
Our Deputy General Manager Emmanuelle Roduit presented the delegation with practical cases of Swiss SMEs doing business in China, followed by perspectives from large corporations of Nestlé – Patrick Bornand (Head of Business Operation and Finance) and Swisslog Logistics Automation – Martina Suter (Head of Marketing Asia Pacific) who shared the industry trends that are shaping the future China Cross Border eCommerce & Intralogistics Automation – and how they have been engaging themselves in despite challenges.
Besides the experience of acquainting with Swiss companies, the delegation also took the chance to experiment during their afternoon visit to iFlytek, China’s leading voice recognition tech company where they were briefed on the varied applications of voice recognition technologies over the demonstrations performed by Jerry Zhu, Business Manager of International Market. iFlytek is applying intelligent voice and AI technology to different sectors, including the real-time interpretation, the judiciary and education.
