China Business Group

Driven by the “Going out” and "Belt and Road Initiative", Chinese companies are investing more and more frequently into Switzerland and Europe.

Switzerland, the European Union and Eastern Europe are a fusion of many languages and cultures, that require a high level of crosscultural business experience when investing and operating in the region.

In order to better assist clients in China and Europe to cope with the challenges of different cultures and languages in different countries, PwC has set up the European China Business Group for this purpose, covering 30 countries in Europe, where we have a highly skilled team with knowledge of the local languages, cultures and dynamics. Our team understands Chinese business culture and has rich experience in working for Chinese clients - such as overseas investment, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), consulting, taxation and law.
We can provide Chinese services to Chinese customers and assist them in communications with local institutions and companies.

PwC Switzerland and the team of the China Business Group are happy to assist you in complex and diverse challenges in the development of Europe:
  • Over 25 different languages
  • Unique business cultures
  • Diverse legal and regulatory systems
  • Economic and political development at different levels
