Who we are
economiesuisse is the umbrella organisation for the Swiss business sector. We represent the interests of the competition-oriented, internationally networked and responsible-minded Swiss business sector. As the link between the political arena, the economy and society, we campaign for the best possible framework conditions for Swiss businesses – from small and medium-sized companies through to major corporations. We are the umbrella organisation for 100 trade and industry associations, 20 cantonal chambers of commerce and a broad range of companies. We currently represent around 100,000 companies from all sectors and all regions in Switzerland, which together employ a total of around two million people. We maintain an open, constructive and solution-oriented dialogue with economic policy-makers and the population. Together with our partners we also set out to achieve shared objectives in referenda and people’s initiatives. Our commitment to the Swiss business sector is oriented on the principles of free trade and competition, and sustainable growth.
Our Team. For its representation of the interests of Swiss businesses, the economiesuisse team works from offices in Zurich, Bern, Geneva, Lugano and Brussels. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
A strong economy. A strong Switzerland.
Our goal is to secure Switzerland as a competitive and attractive business location. We firmly believe that an innovative, highly competitive and flourishing economy forms the basis for our well-being and for Switzerland’s prosperity. As part of our commitment to securing a strong economy, we build bridges between the business sector, policy-makers and society, and we assume full responsibility for our contribution towards the well-being of society as a whole.
What we do
Commitment to a liberal and sustainable market economy. At the political level and during referenda and popular votes, economiesuisse campaigns in all areas of economic policy for the best possible framework conditions for the Swiss business sector. We are committed to securing a liberal and sustainable market economy that takes account of all economic, social and ecological goals.
Dialog with business. We maintain an open, constructive and solution-focused dialogue with the population. Our guiding principle: The economy – it’s all of us. All of us are responsible for shaping our economic model so that it can continue to be successful in the future. This means that ongoing dialogue on the economy is a central factor.
Acting on behalf of our members. We are here to support our members. The members of economiesuisse benefit not only from our representation of their interests and our commitment to securing Switzerland as an attractive business location, but also from the broad range of services we provide and our unique nationwide network. We are actively involved in various international bodies, work closely together with our members and keep them constantly up to date with developments in our various business areas. And we network with other associations and organisations which pursue the same objectives.
