swissnex China X Solar Impulse 2
After so much anticipation, Solar Impulse 2 arrived in Nanjing and we had the pleasure to collaborate with the team for events that gathered thousands of people! With the Embassy of Switzerland in Beijing and the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai, swissnex China organized two Swiss Days in Nanjing, one in Southeast University and another one right under the wings of Solar Impulse 2, giving a chance to attendees to discover more about the "secrets" behind the aircraft. Also, the local media (e.g. Tencent and Sina) reported widely on this Swiss innovation. Read more and have a look at those amazing pictures here!

We know they just love Switzerland.
Being one of the European organizations participated the European Day in Fudan University, swissnex China (and Happy Lily) were thrilled by the warm welcome from the young students. Discover the fun story here.
