About this event

Have you explored the export potential of Switzerland? You may be surprised at the size of the opportunity.

About this event

Switzerland may perhaps not be the first market that comes into the mind of a British exporter. It is however worthwhile looking at as an open economy, characterised by a high degree of flexibility and a clear focus on sustainability, innovation and high quality. Economic forecasts are clearly positive, both in terms of GDP growth, investments and private consumption.

Moreover, Switzerland has decided to abolish import duties on almost all industrial goods as of 2022.

In this webinar, we will hear from Go Exporting’s Swiss partner Prodigo about the key market sectors and how to do business in the country. Explore the potential opportunities in a beautiful country. The UK is the 6th most important supplier to Switzerland, totalling around £13 billion, showing the appetite for UK goods and services.

The webinar will cover:

1. The current business dynamics in Switzerland

2. Opportunities for British companies

3. Tips and tricks on how to approach Swiss prospects

Target audience

This webinar will be ideal for companies who have not considered the Swiss market or who wish to further expand business in the country.
