The Swiss economy is known for having excellent performance levels. Highly specialised enterprises with first rate qualifications, international groups, very liberal politics, a stable purchasing power (notably due to rates of inflation that are among the lowest in the world) and capital at relatively low cost all guarantee companies a fair level of prosperity.
Western Switzerland offers, in addition to a favourable general context, considerable advantages in matters of law, taxes, communication, know-how and mentality of the manpower.
The fact that Switzerland is not part of the European Union is by no means a concern since numerous treaties and bilateral agreements have been signed with the members of the European Union or with other countries in the world.
Moreover, Western Switzerland gathers the presence and know-how of world-renowned actors active in such fields as:
- technologies in general
- industrial equipment
- micro- and nanotechnologies
A region favourable to economy and business!
