The importance of China as a place for doing business has increased enormously in the past few years – at first as an offshore destination for low-cost production of consumer goods, but today also - and increasingly - as a major sales market and source of talents. The expansion of business into China offers great growth potential especially for small to medium-sized enterprises in the high-tech sector. However, it is not easy to gain a foothold in this complex business area.
BaselArea.swiss therefore offers support from a single source to companies in the Basel region (cantons Basel-Stadt, Basel-Land and Jura) – from the initial market evaluation to concrete procurement of business partners. Besides the necessary expertise, our advisors have excellent local contacts, which have been established over many years of exchanges both on the political and on the business level. BaselArea.swiss also cultivates a large network of companies and experts with experience of China who keep abreast of all the latest developments.
As a co-organizer of the annual Swiss-Chinese Life Sciences Forum, BaselArea.swiss helps to deepen exchange between China and the Basel region.
Life sciences companies benefit from partnerships with the Zhangjiang High-Tech Park and the new Fenglin Life Sciences Park in Shanghai and thus have access to the leading life sciences hub in China. The longstanding team of local partners provides support in both building a business in Shanghai (product registration, funding, marketing and so on) and in establishing contacts with potential business partners and clients.
