Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham is delighted to invite you to our upcoming webinar of the series on the topic "China's Approach to a Challenging External Environment" on Thursday, June 30 on Zoom, in collaboration with stars, the French Chamber (CCI France Chine), and the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) as well as with Caixin Global as media partner and the China Macro Group as knowledge partner.

In our third conversation of this series, stars Switzerland Alumni Chapter President Markus HERRMANN, Managing Director at China Macro Group (CMG), will be talking to ZHU Feng, Dean and Professor at Nanjing University's School of International Studies and Non-resident Researcher at the Institute of International Studies in Nanjing. Current developments have changed the perception of international organizations towards China. A challenging geo-political setting as well as China's position on recent economic and political developments at home and within its foreign policy have sparked concern. How does Beijing read these developments? And how will China's policymakers likely balance their at times conflicting interest and ensure a conducive external environment – still considered a key ingredient for continued development?

Kindly note: All webinars of this series are held under Chatham House Rules and will not be recorded. We are looking forward to welcoming you to this interesting webinar.


中国瑞士商会诚邀您参加于6月30日星期四与Stars、China Macro Group、中国法国工商会和欧盟商会及财新网合作的"中国应对充满挑战的外部环境举措"网络研讨会。

本次对话,我们荣幸的邀请到stars瑞士校友会会长、China Macro Group董事总经理Markus HERRMANN对话南京大学国际关系研究院院长,国际战略研究中心客座研究员朱锋教授。世界当前的事态发展改变了国际组织对中国的看法。具有挑战性的地缘政治环境以及中国在国内和外交政策中对近期经济和政治发展的立场引发了担忧。北京如何解读这些事态发展?中国的政策制定者将如何平衡相互冲突的利益并确保有利的外部环境?这仍然被认为是持续发展的关键因素


With best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
