The Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce organised the first Chinese Market Fair in Switzerland, on 27 October 2017. Swiss Re Corporate Solutions hosted the event at Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue. The idea behind this fair was to give the opportunity to Swiss companies to learn more about doing business in China, meet with different Chinese technology parks and gain insights into digital developments in the Chinese market.
The one-day event was attended by more than 250 people from corporations, government and academic world. The participants had the chance to join various seminars with topics such as the newest digital developments in the Chinese market the Belt & Road (B&R) initiative, the interaction between the Chinese and Swiss economies and practical aspects of doing business in China. They also had the opportunity to visit the market fair, with its different stands, where Chinese technology parks presented themselves. Those who visited Corporate Solutions stand learned more about our OneConstruction insurance solution and watched a live demonstration of our CatNet® tool.
Fred Kleiterp, Head EMEA Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, opened the event with a key note speech, where he talked about Corporate Solutions and the B&R initiative that the Chinese government undertook. The aim of this large-scale program is to improve connectivity across China and with the rest of Eurasia, through building a network of infrastructure facilities. Chinese firms taking part in B&R will face a new risk environment in those countries in which they invest and we, in Corporate Solutions, with our risk management expertise in large construction projects, our innovative insurance coverages and our knowledge of the Chinese market, are here to support their endeavors. Jingwei Jia, CEO China Swiss Re Corporate Solutions participated in a panel where the topic of Financing B&R was discussed. The panelists spoke about what it takes to finance B&R, what are the risks involved and where are the opportunities.

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has presence in more than 50 offices around the world, three of those in China - in Beijing, Hong-Kong and Shanghai.
The most recent data published by the National Violent Death Reporting System identifies that, in 2015, 83 suicides occurred in medical facilities. According to the CDC, the suicide rate in the US has increased more than 25% from 1999 to 2016 and 54% of those who died by suicide in that period did not suffer from a mental health condition. They report that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, taking more than 40,000 lives a year. We are aware that most inpatient suicides are the result of hanging, most commonly using a door or its handle or hinge; a head, handle, bar or door in the shower; a ceiling or sink pipe; or another type of fixture as the ligature fixation point. Join us to hear from the team at Garden City Hospital to learn about their journey with identifying and monitoring patients at risk for suicide and removing the means to accomplish suicide in the physical environment.Learn more
