Establishing a company in Switzerland
Switzerland is a federal republic that encompasses 26 cantons in Western Europe. It shares borders with Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Lichtenstein. The Swiss Confederation was established in 1291 and received its independence from the Roman Empire in 1499. Because of its location it is ethnically diverse and so has embraced several official languages: German, French, Italian, and Romansh, the latter a language unique to Switzerland. It has a large and well-developed banking system. Establishing a company in Switzerland may be a good option for various kinds of business activity and offers many advantages.
Switzerland is famous for maintaining neutrality in state or military affairs, and so did not participate in either of the two World Wars or any other war in the modern age, and chose to join the UN only in 2002.
The standard of living there is particularly high, and it is considered one of the most stable countries in various respects. It is characterized by mountainous Alpine landscapes that are especially impressive alongside lakes and verdant valleys. The state capital is Bern, containing all national authorities, but the two major cities in size and business are Zurich and Geneva. The population is 8 million.
