Switzerland No. 1 for large family businesses

Business location Switzerland

Every second year, the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) analyses the attractiveness of European countries as a location for family businesses on behalf of the Stiftung Familienunternehmen (Munich). The latest analysis once again makes Switzerland shine.

Switzerland has once again been chosen by the "Stiftung Familienunternehmen" (Munich) as the best location for large family businesses and hence defends its top position - in the last survey two years ago, Switzerland was already able to assert itself as the number one. The assessment is based on an analysis by the Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), in which areas of particular importance to family businesses were compared: Taxation, financing, infrastructure, labour costs, labour productivity, regulation and energy.
