A warm Welcome to the Swiss & a fond Farewell to the Chinese

On Tuesday evening, the Ambassador hosted the 1st Sino-Swiss exchange student event at the residence. A great number of Swiss students exchanging in Beijing and Chinese students previously or in the future in Switzerland were invited to meet their counterpart in order to share experiences and views on their university, Chinese or Swiss.

The time for discussion and exchange was preceded by a fascinating conference held by Lars Ulrik Thom from Beijing Postcards. His wide knowledge and research on Beijing provided us with a comprehensive understanding of the complexity of the modern Chinese society   He depicted the continuously transformation of the city and its landmark through the insight of its history, culture and revolutions.

The embassy treated then its guests with a tasty Raclette and students from wide horizon engaged in passionate talk until late at night.
