Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

More and more foreign small and middle-sized companies have entered the Chinese market in the last years. Many have grown fast and the China market has developed into one that can no longer be neglected. Others are niche players and while remaining small, they can take advantage of their know-how and expertise in their field to provide services that are unique and cater to the needs of a growing market that asks for high-end solutions.

We have invited three SMEs to talk about their experiences: Komax is a leading manufacturer of wire processing and testing in the automotive industry. Fraisa is specializing in cutting tools and EXH Design is a general planning and architecture company.

Join us for an interesting afternoon to learn how these companies operate, deal with HR issues, growth opportunities and local competition.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
