Swiss Economic Promotion — 265 new companies in 2016
The national conference of Economic Promotion departments have confirmed that 265 new companies have set-up business in Switzerland in 2016, very similar to 2015 (264).
Considering the overall global and in particular the European economic challenges, this is regarded as a positif result as over 1000 new jobs have been created.
Switzerland continues to be very attractive with its highly qualified multilingual and multicultural labor force, economic stability and low employment costs. While limited quotas for work permits regulate the employment market, Switzerland is open to highly qualified experts and continues to apply the bilateral agreements with the EU, thus participating to the development of the Swiss economy.
