Dear stars alumni in Switzerland
We have the great pleasure to invite you to our next stars Switzerland alumni chapter meeting with Joerg WUTTKE, Chief Representative, BASF China; Former President, European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC); Member, stars International Board, Beijing.
In fact, we are facing numerous challenges to foreign business in China: among them, a generally sluggish economy, Covid-induced disruptions of production and supply chains, further politicization of the business environment especially amid China’s role in the Ukraine war, further grown concerns about potential escalations in the Taiwan Strait as well as a rising number of expats leaving the country. China had lost attractiveness for investments; at the same time, eight times as many firms are reported to have plans for more onshoring than those planning to offshore. And how do they balance mitigation for short-term political and economic volatilities with longer-term considerations for domestic and global competitiveness? Joerg WUTTKE, one of the best and most outspoken experts on China, will address these and other questions.
The format will be as follows:
- 17.30: Welcome Drinks
- 18.00: Welcome Address by Toni Schoenenberger, Executive Chairman of stars
Joerg Wuttke, Chief Representative, BASF China; Former President, European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC), Beijing, China: Q&A
- 19.00: Dinner, continuation of discussion
- 20.00: End of meeting
Location: Widder Hotel, Rennweg 7, 8001 Zürich
Please register here until 17 July 2023, seats are limited (20 persons) and will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis.
