07.10.2020 — Press release China
This year marks the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Switzerland, one of the first Western countries to recognise the People’s Republic of China. In the seven decades of diplomatic ties, bilateral relations have reached many milestones marked by, for instance, the Free Trade Agreement in 2013, the first FTA China signed with a continental European country. The two countries’ relations have been flourishing in recent years, with frequent reciprocal visits of top officials and close exchanges on all levels. To commemorate the 70 years of diplomatic ties, the Embassy of Switzerland is running a series of profiles of people who have contributed greatly to our two nations’ relations. These people can be a politician, a scientist, a scholar, an artist or even a watchmaker who introduced Swiss watch making to the Middle Kingdom.
