Abstract
Regionalizm handlowy staje się współcześnie złożonym procesem, biorąc pod uwagę zarówno jego najważniejsze motywacje, wymiar prawny, jak i geograficzną strukturę ewoluującą w kierunku porozumień międzyregionalnych. Jednocześnie konkurencyjność produkcji przemysłowej gospodarek wschodzących w Azji wymaga aktywności w nawiązywaniu nowych umów handlowych, ukierunkowanych na utrzymanie atrakcyjności posiadanych preferencji (poza)taryfowych. Na tym tle ciekawym oraz istotnym przypadkiem jest chińsko-szwajcarska umowa o wolnym handlu (z 2013 r.). Można ją przede wszystkim interpretować w kategoriach stopniowych przygotowań Chin do bardziej kompleksowych negocjacji z kolejnymi partnerami. Celem artykułu jest charakterystyka strumieni handlu towarowego (2001-2015) między tymi krajami, wraz z próbą identyfikacji najważniejszych przewag konkurencyjnych, oraz określenie głównych motywów zawarcia porozumienia. W analizie wykorzystane zostały dane z bazy Międzynarodowego Centrum Handlu oraz dokumenty Światowej Organizacji Handlu.(abstrakt oryginalny)

Trade regionalism becomes a more and more complex process when taking into account both its primary rationales, legal dimension as well as geographical structure evolving towards cross-regional accords. At the same time competitiveness of industrial production of emerging economies in Asia requires enhanced activities in closing trade agreements aimed at sustaining attractiveness of (non-)tariff preferences. Against this background, a particularly interesting case is the free trade agreement between China and Switzerland (2013). It may represent a gradual preparation of the first to more complex accords with other countries. The goal of the paper is to characterise bilateral streams of trade in goods (2001-2015) together with an identification of competitive advantages, as well as an analysis of crucial motives for both parties of the agreement. The analysis is based on trade data from the International Trade Centre together with official documents of the World Trade Organisation.(original abstract)
