Locally enrooted. Internationally networked. Globally thinking!

Lokal verwurzelt. International vernetzt. Global denkend!

We are pleased that you have found your way to us.

The Swiss Chamber of Economics (SCE) was founded in the last century as an institutional non-profit economic association and economic organization. In 2022 we celebrate our great founding anniversary.

The significant contribution of the SCE to the development of economic relations between Switzerland and the international state communities has been officially recognized by the authorities of the Swiss State.

We are controlled, audited, approved and registered with state authorities, public company registers and offices.

Our high reputation and competences and international standards set standards and therefore we enjoy a very high reputation in Switzerland, the trust of our members but also from the side of authorities and institutions worldwide.

The SCE is a very exclusive and high class organization and at the same time an economic association that works for the development of economic relations between Switzerland and the whole world, especially in areas such as investments, trading, import and export, multinational cooperation and exchange of technological goods.

Our customized services and support are mainly offered to our members only. Sustainable social, ethical and environmental responsibility as well as entrepreneurial impulses, regional roots, international networking and globality are of paramount importance, as are the guidelines of Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Every individual and every company has a special history with which emotions and memories are associated. We want to preserve this history, develop it over generations and create lasting value.

The goal of the SCE is to strengthen relations between Switzerland and the rest of the world economy by promoting common, long-term economic interests.

An action program, adopted annually by the Board of Directors, helps achieve the SCE's goals to develop and promote economic and trade cooperation between Switzerland and other countries around the world.

We like to work a lot, precisely and reliably and our work and actions are guided by the principles of SWISSNESS.

Swissness or Suissitude are positive connotated attributes such as fairness, precision, reliability, and political stability, diplomatic neutral and natural openness, which are summarized in one term and are considered typical Swiss characteristics. That is why Swiss people never talk about money.

It is not in the interest of the SCE to participate directly in any commercial activity or to be involved in any financial, economic, industrial or other commercial projects with its own financial resources.

Instead, the SCE focuses on maintaining close relationships with partner organizations, government agencies of all countries and the European Union, business associations, industrial and commercial companies, as well as organizations such as the UNECE, OECD, ICC, WEF the WORLD-BANK and DEVELOPMENT BANK’s.

However, the SCE can act in an advisory capacity for economic, industrial or other commercial projects and transactions, and in the capacity of consultant, financial engineer and/or payment coordinator, appropriately monitor the financial and economic aspects as well as the monetary flows of the projects in order to ensure and guarantee their realization and implementation.

In order to achieve these goals, the SCE is active in Switzerland and worldwide. This creates the conditions for safeguarding the common interests of all members of the Swiss Chamber of Economics.

For the implementation of the offered services, SCE cooperates with renowned Swiss and international banks and financial institutions, which are carefully selected.

The SCE does not only want to maintain and promote economic relations, but also to foster the understanding of a different culture among the members of its worldwide partner organizations. Understanding the specifics of a business partner's culture is certainly a solid basis for a long-term, trustful cooperation in a cultural and economic environment.
