Agenda

Registration

The Swiss economy is a success model. As one of the world’s most important economic centers, Switzerland is synonymous with outstanding innovative strength, active research and development, first-rate education, as well as flexibility and stability.

That said, harsh global competition makes it easier than ever before for multinational companies to move their most important value drivers to other countries. By contrast, a new, patriotic mindset in the U.S. is promoting an economic system focused on domestic interests, questioning the value of free trade agreements and reevaluating the future of globalization itself.

These developments notwithstanding, the number of international company sales has never been higher. Continued international integration is a consequence of the search for competitive advantages and market shares.

This conference explores mega-mergers from a Swiss perspective, focusing on three key economic areas: China, Europe, and the U.S. What are investors looking for? How do promoters integrate and transform target companies? Should Switzerland set up obstacles against such acquisitions to protect national interests?

The speakers at this conference will address these and other related questions. We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
