Event Details

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham is delighted to invite you to the upcoming webinar of stars webinar series Markus HERRMANN, Markus HERRMANN, Co-Founder and Managing Director, China Macro Group (CMG); (Advisory) Board Member stars and SCCC, Zurich, will be talking to JIA Qingguo, Member, Standing Committee of the 11th National Committee of the CPPCC (2008-2013); Member, Standing Committee of the Central Committee of China Democratic League; Former Dean, School of International Studies, Peking University, Beijing, China.

Under Deng Xiaoping, Beijing adhered to the maxim to "hide your strength and bide your time" in foreign affairs, seeking to ensure an international environment conducive to its own development with less active involvement in global politics. First in 2016 in a study session and then in 2018 in a foreign affairs working meeting, Xi laid out his new direction for China's role in global affairs to "lead the reform of global governance" (引领全球治理体系改革). Reflective of this growing sense of global responsibility and clout, China has been (co-)driving a number of initiatives to reshape the existing US-led international order towards a world order conceived of as a "community with a shared future for mankind" (人类命运共同体), among them the BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), or the latest three initiatives of the Global Development Initiative (GDI), the Global Security Initiative (GSI), and the Global Civilization Initiative (GSI).

How does Beijing understand the current world order and multipolarity? What roles and options are there for China in a world where it sees a "rising East and a declining West"? How, and with whom does it intend to reshape post-1945 institutions? And what could this mean for global cooperation and economic globalization? Beyond the key global trading blocs, how does China look at ASEAN, the Middle East, India or Africa?

Kindly note: This webinar is held under Chatham House Rules and will not be recorded. We are looking forward to welcoming you to this interesting seminar.

Webinar Series

With the decision to drop the strict Covid measures announced by China's National Health Commission on 7th December 2022, and travel in and out of the country facilitated again, this year shall also bring to an end a 3-year spell for the Stein am Rhein Symposium (stars) without holding a China symposium. Until then, and in light of the current infection waves on the ground as well as the upcoming 'Two Sessions' in March, we decided to follow-up on last year's successful execution of the "Staying in Dialogue with China" webinar series with a new edition for 2023. This 2nd edition will bring you six webinars with China-based experts concentrated on the H1, between February and June 2023 – before we expect international travel into China to more significantly recover. You can find an overview of the webinars as follows:
