Welcome to Switzerland
Switzerland Business Location
As a business location, Switzerland is characterised by stable political conditions, an attractive taxation, and a streamlined legal system as well as by innovation, high purchasing power and first-class infrastructure.
In geographical terms, Switzerland is not just a hub for the handling of central European markets. Its various cultures and languages also make Switzerland the ideal starting point for entering the markets in neighbouring countries.
Characteristics of Switzerland
Switzerland has three official languages (German, Italian and French) and along with Rhaeto-Romanic, four regional languages. Around 65% of the population speaks German as their main language; French is spoken by approximately 23% and Italian by around 8% of the population as their first language.
German, French and Italian used in Switzerland also have their own nuances, words and special features and are found nowhere else. These are called Helvetisms. An additional special feature is also the mix of the languages, particularly prevalent in the vernacular.
There exists a common “Swiss” culture, but is very different regionally and is shaped by the neighbouring countries. For this reason culture ought to be looked at on a micro level.
◦ Legal System
Politically, Switzerland is a confederation. Each canton has its own partial autonomy, even in legislation. It is therefore possible that certain areas are not regulated at a cantonal level and thereby not the same throughout Switzerland. The Swiss law is in general very streamlined and business-friendly.
