Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

The digitalization of the world is ongoing. How can financial managers deal with the digital transformation that companies undergo in China and around the globe? How does e-commerce and big data impact financial controlling? How does the digitalization of the economy generate new opportunities and challenges for financial managers to create value, minimize costs and increase efficiency in the company? Join us to discuss these and other questions from a finance point-of-view.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
