The Confederation supports export activities, notably through its Swiss Business Hubs, Swiss centers based overseas.
Swiss companies operating overseas can obtain the information, advice and contact necessary to successfully conclude their international activities from the Swiss Business Hubs of Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE). They can also request market research and intervention with the local authorities. On account of their official status, these agencies benefit from a very extensive network of contacts.
Swiss Business Hubs worldwide
The regions where Swiss Business Hubs are based are:
- ASEAN, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ireland, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Austria, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America and the Gulf States.
The local teams of the Swiss Business Hubs are part of the Swiss embassies or Swiss consulates general. In other markets, SMEs can rely on official Swiss establishments—namely, embassies, general consulates and consulates, as well as bilateral chambers of commerce.
Promotion of the Swiss economic market overseas
In addition to providing support to Swiss companies operating overseas, Swiss Business Hubs promote Switzerland’s economic market across its borders. They work in particular on establishing international companies in Switzerland.
