Guest Speaker

Prof. Bryan MERCURIO, Professor and Vice Chancellor’s Outstanding Fellow of the Faculty of Law at the Chinese University of Hong Kong 

Professor Mercurio provided a brief summary of some of the potential benefits to be made for Swiss traders from the Switzerland-China Free Trade Agreement. Focusing on key issues such as investment, intellectual property (including pharmaceutical patents and counterfeiting) and agricultural products, the presentation reviewed the gains made in the negotiations, seek to filter the 'paper' gains in the text from the 'actual' gains which Swiss traders can use to their advantage in the Chinese market and also discussed what this means for Swiss importers, exporters and investors.
