Switzerland has a federal system and is divided into these three political levels: Confederation, cantons and municipalities. By global comparison, the 26 cantons hold a high degree of control.Healthcare, education and culture are among the political areas in which the cantons have a great deal of influence.
Each Swiss canton does its own business development with specialists for the respective economic areas. Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE) checks the potential and feasibility of investment projects before these are submitted to the cantonal business development agencies. The cantons submit concrete location proposals to potential investors and guide you through the ongoing location process. After successful completionof an investment project, the economic development agencies continue to look after the investors through customer service.
