Join the 2017/18 Swiss Business in China survey

We are committed to giving a voice to managers and investors of foreign and Chinese companies in China, with the objective of providing decision makers with a benchmark on how fellow managers and entrepreneurs are doing and ground-level insights on the trends that drive China.

To achieve this, we kindly invite you to give your input by participating in the 2017/18 China Business Survey, presented in collaboration with CEIBS (No. 1 Business School in Asia for Executive education). It is the survey collecting by far the largest number of replies in China and the only one that includes the opinion of managers of Chinese companies and allows a comparative analysis of Chinese and foreign firms and SMEs in China.

Last year’s CEIBS survey received replies from close to 1200 companies, among which there were over 100 decision makers from Swiss enterprises.  The survey is believed to be representative of the approximately 600 Swiss companies that have established operations in China.

For respondents from Swiss companies, additional questions are included to gather insights into how the Swiss business community in particular is doing in the current business environment in China.

The survey is prepared in a user-friendly way and will take around 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete.

All participants will receive a complete set of the results and comparative analysis. For a look at last year’s results, click here to download the 2016/17 survey. Results were published in Switzerland through press releases viewed by over two millions readers. The Swiss Embassy and other official institutions will also make use of the results.

Please be assured that your response will be kept completely confidential and does not require you to leave a company or personal name. In order to receive the results you will only need to leave an anonymous email address.

To thank you for your time and effort, all participants will be entered into a special prize draw for a chance to win the Chinese version of the book Swiss Made: The untold story behind Switzerland’s success by R. James Breiding – an amazing well-written testimony of the Swiss success story first published in English and translated soon into French and Chinese. A testimony to Switzerland’s economic strength and Sino-Swiss friendship, it makes a perfect corporate gift and introduction on Swiss economic history.

We will select 3 random participants who have completed the survey, each to win one hardcover copy of the Swiss Made book. Winners will be notified via email within two weeks after the survey closes.
