Dear Members, Partners and Friends,
While we approach the end of another remarkable year, filled with challenges and triumphs, moments of growth and resilience, and a tapestry of experiences that have shaped us as an organization. Looking back in the past year, Swiss Centers had the pleasure taking part in various events and meetings facilitating Sino-Swiss economic relations, with quite a number of high-level Chinese delegations coming to Switzerland, then in November we organized successfully a Fact-Finding Mission to China with 14 participants from Swiss institutions and companies. At the 6th China International Import Expo (CIIE), the Swiss Centers Booth joining 27 brands under one roof has attracted the numerous Chinese visitors as well the media attention, including the most viewed news program on the Chinese Central Television. We have also participated and contributed to the 2023 Academic Evaluation Report of the Sino-Swiss Free Trade Agreement, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary next year.
Reflecting on the past year, let us recognize the significance of building bridges and physical interactions between the two countries and its people. After 2023, a year of re-connecting and re-discovery, we look forward to seeing and supporting more exchanges and visits, which will lead to concrete and fruitful business development. We also look forward to having a new Customer Success Manager joining our dynamic team based in Shanghai.
Thanks to all the members and partners, for your continuous trust and support. On behalf of the Swiss Centers team, I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
