Switzerland is widely regarded as one of the best countries in the world in which to do business. Its economy is consistently strong, resilient and extensively liberalised, and its business and legal regulatory environment is extremely reliable. Its central location in Europe makes it a geographically desirable location for business, and its world-class banking system offers excellent protection and discretion for domestic as well as international business investors. It also helps that it is one of the cleanest and most beautiful countries in the world, with stunning snow-capped mountain vistas giving away to crystal-clear lakes, rolling hills, quaint towns and vibrant cities.

Further Information on Switzerland:

The Swiss Confederation, usually known as Switzerland, is a federal republic in central Europe. It is subdivided into 26 areas called cantons, with Bern as the federal capital. Switzerland is a landlocked country, bordered by Germany to the north, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, and France to the west. A great part of the country is mountainous, with the Alps spanning the majority of Switzerland’s territory. The geographical landscape is stunningly beautiful, attracting thousands of tourists every year, eager to hike, trek, ski and snowboard in the picture perfect mountains and lowlands. Switzerland also boasts pristine lakes, fertile plains, rolling hills, and vibrant towns and cities. The transport system is excellent and comprehensive, making it easy to travel internally.

The two global and economic centres are Zürich and Geneva. Switzerland’s economy is famous for its stability and long-term consistency with regard to monetary and political policy. Industry, trade and the service sectors are key to Switzerland’s economic success. Switzerland has one of the highest per capita income rates in the world and consistently low unemployment. The healthcare system is universal and considered one of the best in the world, with low infant mortality rates and high life expectancy. The air is clean and crime rates are low. Switzerland is truly the envy of the world in almost every respect.
