Towards a Wider Cooperation of Swiss Companies on VPET in China

Switzerland, as one of the most competitive economy in the world, has traditionally prioritized education and technological progress as the most important strategic objective. Vocational Professional Education and Training plays a crucial role in the Swiss education system, which is recognized as making a significant contribution to competitiveness and productivity, to the adaptation of the workforce to changing patterns of production and work organization, and to social cohesion.
A significant turning point in China-Switzerland cooperation in vocational education was reached in 2017 with the signing of the Memorandum of Collaboration in Vocational Education and Training. The two sides agreed to strengthen the exchange and collaboration in education, scientific research and innovation. As China increasingly emphasizes the cultivation of highly skilled workers, innovative talent, and business management experts, this cooperation between China and Switzerland becomes more strategically significant.
On occasion of China's latest guideline to promote the high-quality development of vocational education, including establishing a modern vocational education system nationwide, and the initiative in China to establish an alliance of Swiss companies on Vocational and Professional Education and Training, the SSEF offers inspiring panel discussions and is followed by an exclusive gala dinner and brings together the most influential voices in the Sino-Swiss business community. The aim is to establish a platform where the most innovative companies and vocational training approaches can be showcased. In addition, key innovators from Fortune 500 companies, as well as high-ranking Chinese and Swiss officials, including the new Swiss Ambassador, are willing to attend the largest economic summit between China and Switzerland.
