At the crossroads of the world
The economic agreements signed by Switzerland with multiple countries make the canton of Vaud the perfect gateway for the European market and indeed the rest of the world. The region also has an international reputation thanks to the prestige of its institutions and the events it organizes on a global scale.
For any company, setting up business in Switzerland is the equivalent of having almost unlimited access to the 520 million consumers of the European Union (EU), whilst still benefiting from the advantages that the Swiss system has to offer. Switzerland is geographically at the heart of Europe and benefits from an extremely high-performance public transport network as well as road infrastructure that is just as impressive. European connections are plenty and easy to access. Two international airports, at Geneva and Zurich, are linked to hundreds of European and international destinations.
