Chinese banks are playing an increasingly important role at the international level, including in Switzerland, with the arrival of new actors. What opportunities do these developments represent for both Switzerland and China? Why is it important to be able to create a “renminbi hub” in Switzerland, and how is Switzerland positioned compared with other European countries? In economic terms, how can banks support Swiss businesses that want to enter the Chinese market?
Organized by Prof. Minyue Dong, from the Department of Accounting and Control at HEC Lausanne, in conjunction with CNN Money Switzerland and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the discussion will include contributions on these topics from:
- Xing Xiao, Independent Director, China Agricultural Bank, and Professor, Tsinghua University
- Li Li, Deputy General Manager, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), Zurich Branch
- Emmanuel Genequand, Head Regulatory & Compliance Services, Partner, PwC Switzerland
- Christophe Weber, Swiss Chinese Chamber of Commerce, President, Geneva Chapter
Moderated by Frédéric Lelièvre, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, CNN Money Switzerland.
