The commodity industry has become an essential part of Switzerland’s economic success. Its net profit has reached 4 percent of Swiss GDP, surpassing tourism. This sector is under regulatory pressure and at the same time little is known about its functioning and importance.
ICC Switzerland has the pleasure to invite you to an event on 13 March 2017 in Zurich. Important delegates of this sector will provide you with first-hand information on their business activities, their added value to the global economy, their CSR-programmes and systems of managing risks in the supply chain. You will learn from a specialist of the Banque Cantonale Vaudoise about the specific challenges of trade financing and economiesuisse will give you new data on the significance of the commodity cluster for the Swiss economy.
Business representatives and opinion leaders should attend. Chatham House rules will apply and participants vouch to respect any confidentiality requests that might be made in order to enable an open discussion. Participation will be free of charge but registration necessary.
We look forward to seeing you in Zurich. Please feel free to forward this invitation to interested colleagues. Non-members are also welcome to participate.
