Expert study: UBS outlook foreign trade

UBS outlook – foreign trade

With an export ratio of nearly 52 percent, the Swiss economy is heavily reliant on international trade. Despite a steady fall in exports to Europe, over 56 percent of Swiss exports in 2012 still went to EU countries, with the EU accounting for 75 percent of imports that same year. This edition of “UBS outlook” highlights the significance of emerging markets in international trade and the general trends in foreign trade. It also presents potential financial solutions for minimizing risk and boosting corporate earnings over the long term.
