Our European operations cover several key countries, with the beautiful country of Switzerland being one of them. Switzerland, renowned for its breathtaking Alpine landscapes, shares borders with Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and Liechtenstein. Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland, serves as a vibrant economic and cultural hub. Switzerland’s 2023 population is estimated at 8,796,669 people.

Switzerland operates under a unique federal directorial republic system, where executive authority is distributed among seven federal councilors. In 2024, the Swiss government unveiled a fresh Federal Council line-up, welcomed a new Swiss Confederation President Viola Amherd, and introduced a new Federal Chancellor Viktor Rossi. This system underscores the country's commitment to decentralisation and collaborative governance. The Swiss Franc is the official currency, and while Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, it maintains strong ties through various bilateral agreements.

The country is known for its well-established banking and financial sector, as well as its commitment to neutrality and international diplomacy. Switzerland's economic landscape is marked by innovation, precision engineering, and a focus on sustainable practices. The country hosts several multinational corporations such as Nestle, Novartis, UBS, and Zurich Insurance Group. It is a global leader in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, finance, and technology. It is also known for being the origin of the Red Cross and hosts the headquarters or offices of most major international institutions, including the WTO, the WHO, the ILO, and FIFA.
