Her Excellency spoke on the unique opportunities offered by Botswana as a trade, investment and tourism destination. She detailed the path that the company has taken since becoming an independent state in 1966 and the progress that its responsible governance has brought to the Botswana people. She and her team members (Ms Sophie Mautle, Minister Counselor and Mr Loungo Monchusi, trade attaché) presented the opportunities that await foreign investors in the areas of tourism and industry. The breathtaking beauty of the many different natural wonders and the interesting options and investment facilitation offered by the local authorities was a key talking point and of great interest to the attending audience.

Tour at Roche Building 1.
Peggy Grueninger welcomed everyone at the reception of Building 1. The tour started in the Visitor Center with a presentation about Roche’s unique expertise for combining molecular biology and technologies to create insights and products that advance science and medical practice for the benefit of patients. The tour continued in the info center, where we learned more about how Roche expands in the upcoming years the Head Quarters with new office and research buildings.

Making our way to the top of currently the highest office building of Switzerland, there were a lot of interesting facts to learn about the building, which was completed in 2015: With 41 floors and workspace for around 2,000 employees, the office high-rise also shows a clear commitment to the Basel site. It meets the highest standards in terms of functionality and technology. Open communication zones on all office levels, extending up to three floors or more, are conducive to open exchanges among employees. Moreover, Building 1 is a most energy-efficient building. The tour ended on the 38th floor at the Pebbles Bar, where everyone enjoyed the amazing view over Basel with a delicious apéro.
