Welcome to EF...
I don't know anything about you specific area, but I imagine it reflects the rest of the Swiss job market, here are some quick thoughts.
You will likely find that the Swiss market has a relatively well established salary level for your given job. You will likely be told the number prior to receiving an official offer of employment and there will not be much room for negotiation. You may be able to negotiate a package that includes extras such as moving costs, language courses, etc especially if you are a specialist or if they specifically need someone from China. This is likely your best place to bargain since base comp and holidays are, as I said, usually set in advance.
