According to economic researchers at BAKBASEL, the economy in the Basel region is expected to grow this year by 1.9 per cent and next year by 2.4 per cent, according to a newsletter from the Economic Development Baselland. This will make it a Swiss-wide leader in terms of growth. There will also be a job growth of 1 per cent.
