Focus on the economy in Switzerland

The Swiss economy is one of the most important economies in the world. In addition to a high-tech manufacturing industry, the country also offers one of the most important financial centers in Europe. Numerous mechanical engineering companies and technology giants such as ABB are based in Switzerland. Globally operating banking houses such as UBS or Credit Suisse originate from Switzerland. The luxury watch industry also contributes to the fact that Switzerland ranks second in the world in terms of GDP per capita. Increasingly, international trading conglomerates are also based in Switzerland for legal reasons, such as the commodities trading group Glencore. The pharmaceutical industry also has a strong presence in Switzerland, with companies such as Roche and Novartis. Regional centers of the Swiss economy are Basel, Zurich, Geneva and Baar. For example, the mechanical engineering group ABB and the bank UBS are headquartered in Zurich. Basel is home to the pharmaceutical companies Roche and Novartis, as well as the chemical giant Syngenta. Geneva is home to many retailers, such as Cargil or Gunvor. With our list of the Swiss economy and the companies with the highest turnover, we offer a unique insight into one of the most productive economies in the world.

This is, of course, also due to the fact that the south of Switzerland is lined by mountain ranges. Particularly active economic centers are Zurich, Basel, Geneva, Lucerne, Lausanne and St. Gallen.
