Joint Chamber Luncheon Event "Managing Business in China"

Guest speaker Dr. Han J Roth, Consul General of Switzerland in Hong Kong, has a long Chinese experience that he gathered over the past 30 years. He studied Mandarin and socialist economic theory in the late 70s right after the initial opening up of China. After entering into the Foreign Ministry, Dr. Roth's China experience was enriched with postings as Deputy Head of Mission at the Swiss Embassy in Beijing from 1990 to 1995 and as Consul General of Switzerland in Shanghai from 2001-2006. Dr. Roth concentrates essentially on intercultural questions in business and management and has just published two books, "Managing China" and "Leitfaden China".
