I would like to welcome you to this year’s last session of „Speed, Action: Results!“ with our subject „Doing Business in China.“

Gain 1 ‰ of the adult Chinese as one-time-customer (let’s take 800’000’000 people) and you have 800’000 customers. Say you sell innovative vacuum cleaners like Dyson (from Switzerland) and you can calculate yourself how much you’ll be earning in three years. But is it really working out?

He is responsible for the Sino Swiss Management Training of the China Competence Center at the University of St. Gallen and Senior Consultant of the TAO China Center Switzerland.

Together with these speakers we will explore the opportunities and difficulties in doing business with China.
At the end of the day there will be a round table with a Q&A session. The plenary discussion with all speakers will be moderated by Mr. Josef Mondl, one of the most distinguished China experts in Switzerland.
