A thriving economy is the foundation of our prosperity and the foundation for a healthy and successful Switzerland. As a national federation, economiesuisse represents the interests of the competitive, internationally networked and responsible Swiss business community. As a link between politics, business, and society we campaign for a business environment in which Swiss companies of all sizes can thrive. We represent approximately 100,000 companies from all business sectors and regions of Switzerland with a collective work force of some 2 million people. We cultivate an open, constructive, and solution-focused dialog with important economic policy makers and the general public. In referendums we support our partners in an effort to achieve common goals. Our commitment to business is guided by the principles of a free, market oriented system and of sustainable growth.
