Economic and Commercial Section

Tasks and objectives of Economic and Commercial Section

The Economic and Commercial Section contributes to the strengthening and enhancement of the Sino-Swiss economic relations in the Yangtze-Delta Region. Bilateral visits by Swiss official and business delegations and vice versa are of outmost importance to ensure an efficient cooperation between Switzerland and the Yangtze-Delta Region. The Economic and Commercial Section prepares and actively participates in economic missions and arranges the follow-up. A deepening of the Sino-Swiss economic relations further includes the improvement of the overall economic environment for Swiss business in China. This Section provides Swiss companies with general and legal information on the Chinese economy and if necessary, carries out diplomatic interventions and helps to arrange and facilitate meetings with Chinese authorities. In cooperation with the Swiss Business Hub it supports Swiss companies to establish contacts and to promote Swiss exports. To fully accomplish these tasks it is necessary to closely monitor the development of the Chinese economy and the main legislative changes. This economic team regularly participates in official economic and business events, seminars and briefings to compose reports and up-dates for the corresponding Swiss authorities.

We deal with the following areas in particular

  • Organize bilateral visits on provincial and municipal governmental levels and assist Swiss delegations in the Consular Region
  • Support Swiss companies in dealing with Chinese authorities and provide them with relevant information
  • Maintain relations with Chinese authorities, Chambers of Commerce, national and international organizations
  • Enhance network in areas of Swiss economic interests
