Getting Started

Switzerland’s per capita gross domestic product is the fifth-largest in the world, or eighth-largest when adjusted for purchasing power. At USD 64,642 the per capita gross domestic product was considerably higher than the EU average in 2010.

Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland offers a strategic location and a gateway to European Union markets. Both the high-quality infrastructure and business-friendly environment make Switzerland a country full of business opportunities. American exporters can take advantage of a sophisticated, high-quality and competitive market as well as a multicultural European test market for new products.

One of the most liberal and competitive economies in the world, Switzerland has always maintained close economic ties with other countries.  A secure legal system and long-term stable fundamentals for investors, relatively little regulation and the proximity to research institutions make it the location of choice in Europe for businesses offering high quality products and services.
