Brochure „Switzerland’s SME policy“

For Switzerland the many flexible and innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) play an important role.

They account for the vast majority of businesses in Switzerland, provide two-thirds of all jobs and are an important basis for our stable and productive economy. Moreover, we dispose of a dual-track system of education, which provides Switzerland with well-trained, multilingual and motivated professionals at all levels.

The Swiss federal council offers with his SMEs portal a platform which shall design the framework conditions for these enterprises as optimal as possible. Because every new regulation means extra work and excessive red tape is a drag on the economy. In the brochure „Switzerland’s SME policy” the federal council informs about financial aids, internationalization support as well as instruments in the area of research and innovation. Further contents are the administrative reliefs for enterprises, the education and further education as well as the consistency of profession and family.
