Standing at the turning point – The new start

Over the past decades, China has grown into one of the world´s largest economies. Under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, China is going for extra miles for more international responsibilities with deeper economic reforms. The Year 2016, as the first year of the thirteenth five-year plan, will be the key point for China to transform its manufacturing economy from heavily relying on investment towards an innovative environmental friendly economy depending more on consumption. Accordingly, 2016 is the year where Project China will dive into these trends, trying to offer you a brand new starting point.

Project China 2016
To encourage collaboration between Sweden and China for students and businesses

Project China was established in 2003 as a joint student project between the Student Association at the Stockholm School of Economics and the Royal Institute of Technology. The main objective of the project is to create opportunities where students and corporations may interact in China and Sweden, as well as to further encourage and stimulate the interest for the two countries. This is the 14th consecutive year of the project. When participating in Project China, partner companies are offered a platform for interaction with ambitious Swedish students at SSE and KTH, as well as top-performing Chinese students at Tsinghua University, Peking University, Fudan University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The project is a great opportunity to strengthen the company brand among those students. Companies will get to meet Chinese students through seminars, events and career fairs in Beijing and Shanghai. Together we will both reach thousands of students at the most renowned universities in Sweden and China while also enable specific recruitment opportunities.
