The two leaders are more cautious in matiure employment, including the maintenance of jobs in Switzerland. However, both want to be optimistic, “the йvolution present speaking in favor of the crйation jobs and the gйnйration of entrйes tax supplйmentaires,” said Mr Ren.

The Chinese in addition confirmй the promise to maintain the siuge main Syngenta а Bвle, believing it was essential to anchor the west of the group rhйnan. The two leaders are not afraid of a shock on the level of corporate cultures. For the win-win agreement is vйrifie for both parties, ChemChina and Syngenta should not merge, ” notes Mr. Demarй.
