Happy Chinese New Year! 鸡年吉祥!

The Year of the Rooster 2017 begins on January 28, 2017. According to Chinese astrology, the Rooster years are known to be filled with integrity and efficiency. Also, it is an auspicious year for marriage and relationships ;-) In a further level, professional relationships too will turn out to be fruitful! swissnex China has several projects under planning and one of them will bring the winning team from our Urban Entrepreneurs Challenge to Geneva for the Lift:Lab to complete their project prototyping. Looking back to the year of the Monkey, we are grateful that our collaborations with partners and stakeholders continued to grow, thanks to an amazing teamwork with all our dear colleagues based in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou. In the end, we wish you good luck and great success for this Rooster year!
