Leuthard, who is the minister for the environment and transport, said she had been received in China with “open arms” and met with several high-level Chinese officials.
The two countries agreed to develop protocols to guide their collaboration on transport and environmental issues.
Leuthard said there were opportunities for Swiss technology to contribute to the controversial Three Gorges Dam project in China, as well as other hydro-electric projects.
She said the Chinese were also interested in Swiss methods of rail “piggybacking” – when trucks carrying goods are transferred from road to rail – and by Swiss rail punctuality.
