If there is any Western country that has achieved much success by applying ancient Chinese wisdom to its governance, it must probably be Switzerland, said Harro von Senger, a leading Sinologist.

Since the end of 1990s, von Senger, who works with the Lausanne-based Swiss Institute of Comparative Law, has been making efforts to decode the ways behind his country's governance tactics.

He found strong links to ancient classics by Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu, who lived more than 2,500 years ago.
