A message from the President

Dear Members of the Swiss Association of Taiwan,

As most of you know, I have been elected as the new president of the Swiss Association of Taiwan. Along with the rest of our newly elected team — Jean-Pierre Skalamera as the new vice president, and Philipp Stalder as the re-elected treasurer — I look forward to an exciting year for the Swiss Association of Taiwan.

On behalf of the association, I would first like to thank Michel Blanc for his long-term commitment to the association and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Please take note of the following association events:

– Our Swiss National Day Party at the Yuan Shan Club Taipei is coming up and we kindly ask you to mark Friday, August 1, 2014, in your calendars. We will send you further details including the registration information soon.

– If you would like to cheer with fellow soccer fans for our team in the course of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Capone’s will show all the games live and hold special opening hours. You can also find a match schedule on Capone’s homepage (

– Our next monthly Swiss Apéro will take place on Monday, June 30, 2014, at Capone’s.

I look forward to seeing all of you at upcoming Swiss Association events. Do not hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions, concerns, or need more information about upcoming events. Please also let me know, if you are interested in helping organize future events. At this stage we especially need help with the organization of our Swiss National Day Party. You can reach me at

Kind regards,

Gianna Abegg
