Swiss Centers China signed an agreement on Mar 25 indicating that it would participate in the fourth China International Import Expo to be held in Shanghai from Nov 5 to 10.
Felix Sutter, president of the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce，said that more Swiss small- and medium-sized enterprises have shown a keen interest in the CIIE and he hopes that Swiss exhibitors can achieve greater results through the expo.
According to Kuno Gschwend, deputy general manager of Swiss Centers China, more high-quality and competitive food, agricultural products and consumer goods will be showcased at Swiss booths during the fourth CIIE.
"The economic and trade cooperation between China and Switzerland has shown positive momentum. The two sides have been in line with the principle of complementary advantages and mutual benefits," said Liu Fuxue, deputy director-general of the CIIE Bureau.
Nearly 60 Swiss companies, including Nestle and ABB, participated in the third CIIE. The total exhibition area occupied by Swiss companies measured 12,000 square meters at the third edition, according to Liu.
"The reform and opening-up of China will provide countries across the world, including Switzerland, with a larger market and increasing opportunities. We encourage Swiss companies to make full use of the CIIE to introduce more Swiss products to the Chinese customers," Liu added.
