Country Handbook



Wilkommen and Bonjour in Switzerland!

Snow-covered Alpine peaks, high-tech watches, gourmet chocolate and savory cheeses are only a few of the things you can expect to experience in Switzerland. Its geopolitical neutrality has made it a popular headquarters for many international organizations and businesses. The hospitality of its people and distinct mountainous regions also make it a popular tourist destination. Ski in the white alps, boat on the sparkling Lake Geneva or eat like the Swiss by consuming 23 pounds of chocolate per year.
