A strong economic framework - Interpharma


A strong economic framework

Switzerland and the pharmaceutical industry have been travelling a successful path together for decades. An economic policy that provides attractive framework conditions has favoured the impressive development of the research-based pharmaceutical industry. At the same time, the pharmaceutical industry is a pillar of the economy, contributing to Switzerland’s prosperity to an above-average degree. The pharmaceutical industry will continue to need optimum framework conditions in the future, and Switzerland needs successful companies. Political stability, legal certainty, open export markets, the availability of a qualified workforce and an attractive fiscal landscape are all factors that play a major role in this symbiosis.
