Switzerland’s prosperity rests to a great extent on openness, and its economic success is based on the largely unhindered exchange of goods, services, capital, people, and ideas with other countries. Avenir Suisse develops strategies for foreign trade policy, with the emphasis on Swiss-EU relations, new trade agreements, and Switzerland’s participation in multilateral organizations. Avenir Suisse critically examines both monetary policy and agricultural policy against the backdrop of foreign trade relations, with the aim of strengthening Switzerland’s position in the long term.
