Insight China celebrates its 21st Anniversary!
Insight China looks back at a rich history of successful projects, informative interactions, exciting routes and knowledge transfer between Swiss and Chinese representatives. To continue this legacy and make this special anniversary unforgettable for our delegation this year’s edition will cover the following destinations to guarantee you a full insight into the Chinese culture!
As one of the oldest cities in the world – and not only because Beijing is a 6-times capital city – it bears its very own history. Beijing is home to a total of seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is considered the cultural hub of China. Unique culture, art, cuisine and architecture. In China’s second largest city – the number 1 China gateway – we will start our on-site trip and create an optimal basis for an exciting and completely new experience.
Not for nothing is Shanghai the most famous city in China. Many popular districts, one of the first and now one of the largest Chinese ports (open for trade with the West). As one of China’s most influential trading centers – since the Communist victory in 1949 – meeting domestic demand. Shanghai aims to become a leading digital infrastructure and a global forerunner. Due to its geographical location on the coast of the East China Sea – between the Yangtze River and Hangzhou Bay – it encompasses not only the city itself, but also the surrounding suburbs and agricultural hinterland.
As the most western destination in this year’s Insight China edition, Chengdu is one of the most important economic, industrial, commercial and communication centres in Western China. Chengdu is the capital of the Sichuan province and holds a deep and long history. The city is called the “Capital of Pandas” and is the main hotspot for technological and digital innovations of the province.
Along the coast of the South China Sea and in the immediate north of Hong Kong lies Shenzhen. Shenzhen, a provincial city on the east bank of the Pearl River Delta, is widely known as China’s Silicon Valley. It is considered to be one of the fastest-growing cities in the world – from a small seaside town to one of China’s biggest and most important cities. Many of China’s innovations and inventions were discovered in Shenzhen.
