The global network of Switzerland Global Enterprise includes the official agencies of Switzerland Global Enterprise in 27 target markets and regions (22 Swiss Business Hubs, 5 Trade Points). In addition, S-GE maintains close business ties with 20 bilateral chambers of commerce around the world to offer Swiss SMEs a close-knit contact base for their search for local experts, partners and customers. Swiss Business Hubs enjoy a special status in the target markets, since they form a part of Swiss embassies or consulates – the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), which presides over all Swiss embassies and consulates is the most important contractual partner of Switzerland Global Enterprise alongside the State Secretariat for Foreign Affairs (SECO).
The employees from Export and Investment Promotion in the Swiss Business Hubs – the Swiss Business Hub managers, local Trade Officers and Business Development Managers – receive a USP from the Swiss official status granted by an embassy or a consulate when in contact with potential business partners for Swiss exporters and interested investors.
The global network is led by a dedicated team from Switzerland Global Enterprise in Zurich whose activities are in the field of customer relations to DFA and SECO and to Swiss embassies and consulates general in all markets in which Switzerland Global Enterprise operates. The team is also responsible for the organizational and strategic direction of the entire global network on behalf of our customers and clients.
