The Sino-Swiss Business Awards (SSBA) is a highly regarded biyearly event organized by SwissCham China in partnership with the Swiss Embassy. Its primary objective is to recognize and celebrate companies's significant contributions to the Swiss and Chinese business communities.
The SSBA will include 5 distinct award categories, each highlighting a specific industry and topic. These categories guarantee a comprehensive representation of various industries and ensure that both Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Multinational Corporations (MNCs) have equal opportunities to be recognized separately. In each award category, there will be two awards given, one to an MNC and another to an SME, further emphasizing fairness and inclusivity.
In the Swissnex Innovation Pioneer Award category, there will be an additional sub-category exclusively for start-ups, allowing them to participate and compete in recognition of their unique contributions and innovative approaches.
1. Swissnex Innovation Pioneer Award
2. Sustainable Development Award
3. Quality Excellence Award
4. Digital Transformation Award
5. Talent Development and Diversity Award
Why you should apply?
The Roadshow is a complementary initiative of the SSBA, during which companies have the opportunity to showcase their achievements and/or products in their selected award category at four different events hosted around China.
All the award candidates will have to present their projects in the selected award category. This segment provides a platform for candidates to showcase their successful strategies and approaches. It enables them to exchange valuable insights and experiences with local and international participants. A matchmaking will be co-hosted with the local International Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

The videos will be shared on the Embassy's social media network as part the 2024 Public Diplomacy Campaign.
