Federal Councillor Ueli Maurer receives China's central bank governor

Bern, 12.11.2018 - On 12 November 2018, Finance Minister Ueli Maurer will receive the Governor of the People's Bank of China Yi Gang in Bern. Topics will include international financial matters and the further strengthening of bilateral cooperation in the financial sector. Following the meeting, financial market players from both countries will expand on the topics within the framework of the official financial dialogue and a round table.

Switzerland and China maintain close economic ties which have gradually been expanded in recent years, in particular in the financial sector. The regular direct exchanges are an important element here. Federal Councillor Maurer and Governor Yi will discuss current international financial issues, including the challenges of digitisation of the economy with high-ranking representatives of the Swiss financial centre. The second important topic is the further strengthening of bilateral relations in the financial sector.  

On 13 November 2018, the sixth round of the financial dialogue which was started in 2013 will take place in Lugano and will focus on regulatory developments in the two countries, regulatory challenges in the fintech area, bilateral cooperation in the financial sector, market access issues and cooperation in multilateral bodies. On 14 November 2018, the fourth Chinese-Swiss financial round table will be conducted by the private sector also in Lugano.
