The Swiss Ambassador's residence in Bryanston Square was the setting on 16 April 2013 for the London launch of the book “Swiss Made: the untold story behind Switzerland's success”. Ambassador Thalmann welcomed the guests and introduced James Breiding, founder and owner of Naissance Capital, a Zurich investment firm, and a past contributor to The Economist on Swiss affairs. The capacity crowd listened intently as the author outlined his conclusions about the unique combination of factors which have allowed so many Swiss companies to take their place alongside the largest global competitors. There then followed a panel discussion, moderated by Hans-Joerg Rudloff, Chairman of Barclays Investment Bank. The panelists represented the diversity of Switzerland’s economy: Gary Steel, Head of HR at ABB Ltd; Riccardo Pfenninger-Fabro, CEO/Owner of the textile company Fabric Frontline Zurich AG; Christine Macqueen, Director of Corporate Affairs at SICPA UK Ltd; and Hans-Peter Endress, Chairman of Endress + Hauser Ltd. All participants agreed that flexibility and innovation would be the key factors to ensure the continuing success of the Swiss model in the future.

The Swiss contribution at this year’s International Fashion Showcase CH talents: Depicting Fashion was a great success. The two-week-long exhibition at the Gallery@Oxo attracted hundreds of visitors and was shortlisted by the British Fashion Council as one of the best contributions this year, as it challenged the perception people have of Switzerland and showed a modern and innovative side of the alpine state.
First and foremost, we would like to thank all the designers and DASH Magazine for the successful collaboration and all the volunteers who made this venture possible.
The Swiss Federal Council approved a new financial market policy in December 2012 with the aim of consolidating and cementing Switzerland’s reputation as an open, competitive and dependable centre for international finance.
The recently concluded tax treaty with the United Kingdom is an integral part of this strategy as Switzerland takes proactive steps to ensure full compliance with international standards and regularise any hitherto undeclared assets.
The overall objectives of the new policy are threefold:
- To serve as an international model through rigorous combatting of abusive practice
- To offer services of the highest quality that will be valued by customers worldwide
- To withstand future shocks and volatility on the international financial and capital markets
