Other prominent figures who have confirmed their participation are:

  • Martine Brunschwig Graf , President, State of Geneva, Switzerland
  • Christine Lagarde , Minister of Foreign Trade, France

‘Geneva is proud to host the China Europe Business Meeting. As one of the world's most vibrant and competitive cities, Geneva is the appropriate place to strategise on ensuring that Chinese corporations reach their potential as truly global players', said Carlo Lamprecht , Minister of Economy, State of Geneva.

Xu Kuangdi , Vice Chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), President of Chinese Academy of Engineering and Chairman of China Federation of Industrial Economics said: ‘I am very delighted that, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relationships between China and Europe, the China Europe Business Meeting is being held in the beautiful city of Geneva. I hope that this meeting will make new contributions for further promoting Sino-European trade'.

The meeting is a vehicle for Chinese firms to scout business opportunities in Europe and to develop into Multinational Corporations.
