Switzerland Pavilion headed for Hangzhou

THE Switzerland Pavilion may become the first foreign pavilion to stay permanently in China, but in Hangzhou.

A Zhejiang Province-based private company signed an agreement yesterday with the Swiss side after winning an online auction last Friday for the right to reconstruct the pavilion for 7.02 million yuan (US$1.05 million).

Zhejiang Zhongyeh Holding Group plans to rebuild the Swiss pavilion at Qiandao Lake, or Thousand Island Lake, in Hangzhou within six months, according to company president Gu Jianing.

The Swiss pavilion is now being dismantled.

At Qiandao Lake, the Swiss pavilion will open to the public and serve as a platform for cultural and business exchanges between China and Switzerland, Gu said. He wouldn't say whether the company, which is engaged in urban infrastructure construction, will charge for entry.
