Bilateral relations Switzerland–Marshall Islands

Relations between Switzerland and the Republic of the Marshall Islands are marginal. There are no notable economic ties with this sparsely populated Pacific island state.

Key aspects of relations

The Marshall Islands benefit from Switzerland’s involvement in regional projects, particularly in the area of climate change. For example, the Pacific Climate Change Roundtable, which is carried out with the partner organisation the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environmental Programme (SPREP).

Scholars and artists from the Marshall Islands can apply for Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships to the State Secretariat for Education Research and Innovation (SERI).

Diplomatic relations are maintained by the Swiss embassy in Manila (Philippines) and are limited to sporadic contacts and occasional cooperation within a multilateral framework.
