In line with the general trend of the Chinese economic development to go west, and in parallel to the first SwissWeek® Chengdu, sim opens its Branch office West China in the capital of Sichuan Province.

This step is significant and will bring support to Swiss and European business in the region, as we will offering our proven range of services also out of Chengdu.

The discussions around the SwissWeek® Chengdu have shown not only a strong interest of businesses to establish in or at least deal with the western provinces of the People’s Republic, but also a lack of competence in the region in terms of foreign supporting services, market intelligence and professional fiduciaries.

We at sim feel the time is right to be present now in this part of the country, and the official opening of the Swiss Consulate General in Chengdu at the same time proves us certainly right. The importance of the region is growing rapidly, and the influence as well as the buying power of the provinces under the new Consular district will increase over the coming years.

Therefore, as from Novemebr 1st, 2017, sim is proud and happy to serve you also out of Chengdu, and we look forward to receive any inquiry at .
