stars Webinar series – Staying in Dialogue with China

COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of all stars symposia in 2020 and 2021 including those two foreseen in Shenzhen where we wanted to continue the annual stars China symposia previously held in Chengdu and Chongqing since 2011. Realizing that 2022 will be another year without reasonable possibilities for physical interactions with friends and experts in China, we have prepared a China-dedicated webinar series with seven webinars taking place between May and September 2022. We are happy to cooperate with SwissCham Beijing and Shanghai, the British Chamber (BritCham China), the French Chamber (CCI France Chine), the Italian Chamber (CICC) 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.

The events will be held in a hybrid fashion, so in addition to the online webinars and the Covid situation permitting, there are also physical events at the European Business Centre in Beijing, allowing to deepen the discussion directly after the webinar. The physical events are jointly hosted by the stars alumni chapter Beijing, Caixin Global and SwissCham Beijing. Onsite spots can be booked through the Chamber partners SwissCham Beijing and Shanghai, the British, French, Italian and EUCCC Chamber.

Kindly note: All webinars of this series are held under Chatham House Rules and will not be recorded.
