Together with the association “Friends of China”, Dr. Hans-Peter Bärtschi organised his first trip to the Middle Kingdom in 1977. Back then, publications on architecture, urban development and railways were very popular in China. Next to two more trips, Bärtschi organised two further journeys to discover mining, industrial and railway sites, mainly in Manchuria.
