UBS Outlook Switzerland – Swiss competitiveness under scrutiny
Lukas Gähwiler, CEO UBS Switzerland, invites Swiss journalists to breakfast once per quarter at which CIO WM provides an independent assessment of the economic situation in relation to Switzerland and also examines other relevant key subjects. At a press event on April 18, 2013 Daniel Kalt, chief economist of UBS Switzerland, presented a study of the competitiveness of Switzerland in international context, along with UBS Outlook.
UBS concluded that Switzerland is extremely competitive because it encourages competition between the cantons and municipalities and, thanks to federal and directly democratic institutions, ensures it has a bearing on politics as well. “Switzerland is particularly convincing thanks to its high level of innovation, its excellent education system and its dependable institutions, and is rightly considered one of the most attractive economic locations in the world. These success factors will have to be cultivated in future too,” added Lukas Gähwiler, CEO UBS Switzerland, at a media event in Zurich.
In the interview Professor Beat Hotz-Hart stressed the need for more adaptable political institutions in order to preserve Switzerland‘s good location factors.
