A new U.S. Administration – What is in store for the USA/China relationship?

Thursday, April 22 from 12:00 - 13:30

This session will review the Biden policy agenda for China and Asia, and identify the key areas of similarity and difference from the Trump administration. Given the preeminence of “Outcompeting” China in the Biden administration’s stated foreign policy agenda, the talk will drill down into key expectations for and the specific elements of “the (new) China strategy”. The talk will assess how the new measures and means are likely to impact the US-China and broader Sino-western relationship across trade and national security dimensions, and how this could influence the geopolitical risk set for American and European multinational companies operating in China or engaging Chinese firms in home markets. Discussion with members will assess how new US policies and approaches could impact the business environment for western MNCs in China in both the near- and medium-term.

The Böögg’s Journey - Sächsilüüte,
April 19, 2021 – Don’t miss it!

(picture - Wikipedia)
Every year, on the third Monday in April, the people of Zurich celebrate their traditional spring festival “Sächsilüüte” (literally translated: six o’clock ringing). You can read more about this rich, local tradition here.

Like last year, this year’s festivities have been cancelled due to the pandemic with one big exception. The legendary “Böögg”—a bogeyman disguised as a snowman and symbolizing winter—will be transported from Zurich to Kanton Uri. There it will be burned—according to tradition at 18:00—on the “Teufelsbrücke”(devil’s bridge).  Tune in to a local television station on Monday, April 19th at 18:00 to watch the events unfold!
