Economic Mission to Hangzhou

Monday to Tuesday, April 01 - 02, 2019

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

With the support of SwissCham, the Swiss Consulate in Shanghai is planning to organize an economic mission to Hangzhou Municipality, Zhejiang Province, from April 01 to 02, 2019.

As the birthplace of China’s private economy and as well that of the e-commerce giant Alibaba, Zhejiang is one of the richest and most developed provinces in China, with its per capita disposable income ranking No. 3, right after Shanghai and Beijing, while its GDP volume retaining the 4th place behind Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shandong province. After 40 years’ of reform and development, the province wants to take the lead in China’s transformation from a low-cost manufacturer into a technologically advanced, innovative economy. This transition is coupled with a wave of handover of rein to the second generation of entrepreneurs, with renewed ambitious and entrepreneurial spirits for a sustainable future development.

In order to establish a platform for strengthening exchanges between Chinese and Swiss entrepreneurs in the context of the Sino-Swiss strategic innovative partnership, a Zhejiang-Swiss Young Entrepreneurs Innovation Forum, as a highlight of this year’s economic mission, will be held on 2nd April, with participation of members of Zhejiang Youth League, Zhejiang Young Entrepreneurs Association, Zhejiang Young Scientists Association and Swiss delegation. The Forum is supported by Zhejiang Provincial Government and co-organized by the Swiss Consulate in Shanghai, Zhejiang Young Entrepreneurs Association, Zhejiang Young Scientists Association and Shanghai Zhejiang Chamber of Commerce.

The main purpose of the economic mission is to offer Swiss companies an opportunity to know more about and better understand the local business and investment environment and to establish contacts with the government and entrepreneurs. The program will be coordinated with the local government, according to the needs and profile of the participating companies.

The main content will include:

  • Official meeting with the provincial leaders
  • Zhejiang-Swiss Young Entrepreneurs Innovation Forum
  • Visit to selected Swiss and local enterprises

Best Regards,

Your SwissCham Team
