Economic situation

Growth expected to remain sluggish in 2016

2016_CR_WE_Switzerland_Real_GDP

As in 2015, Swiss GDP growth is expected to remain subdued (up 1.2% in 2016), as exports continue to be affected by the appreciation of the Swiss franc (especially against the euro) and weaker global demand. For export-oriented businesses production costs have risen relative to their export prices, squeezing profit levels. Switzerland relies heavily on exports, which account for 70% of GDP. However, a rebound of exports is expected in the second half of 2016, with a lower franc exchange rate and increased demand from the eurozone. The Central Bank´s benchmark interest rate remains negative at -0.75%, which has contributed to the weakening of the Swiss franc exchange rate at a certain degree.
