Chinese and multinational companies in Switzerland: success stories

The capacity of Switzerland to offer a stable economic, political and business environment has long made it home to many leading global organizations. They include the United Nations and the International Olympic Committee, and Swiss multinational companies that originated in Switzerland and have their global headquarters here such as ABB, Nestlé, Novartis, Roche, Credit Suisse and UBS. In more recent years they have been joined by numerous global and European headquarters for Chinese companies that include the likes of Huawei, Yuanda and Ruida, and international companies such as Unilever and P&G.

In this booklet we provide a number of consise case studies of successful companies from China and around the world that have set up in Switzerland. These "proofs of concept" range from small sales offices, to R&D centers and to European or global headquarters. With no company having the same requirements as another, what they all have in common is the desire to take advantage of the liberal market conditions and the wealth of benefits Switzerland has to offer, as well as the quality of life it provides for their staff.

With the backing of both government and private industry, Switzerland and each of its 26 cantons actively encourage inbound investment by providing a flexible package of services tailored to each company's needs.

The Swiss Business Hub China welcomes your interest in our country as your gateway to Europe and encourages you talk to our local representatives within the Embassy of Switzerland in Beijing. They will offer you a warm welcome and help you quickly discover the unique benefits and advantages Switzerland has to offer your company, following the success stories of companies depicted hereafter.
