Periodically, the MoneyMuseum organizes a discussion evening, depending on the topicality of the subject. Location: MoneyMuseum, Hadlaubstrasse 106, 8006 Zurich. Number of participants limited to 20.

The goal of these events is to gain a better, deeper understanding of China, its history and its response to global politics, either as a suggestion by a lecture or in dialogue with a speaker. The following articles address a range of topical issues. Our China booklet is available for free at the MoneyMuseum.
