Switzerland, located in central Europe, is one of the most developed countries in the world, with two leading global cities Zurich and Geneva. The country is divided into 26 states (cantons). Widely recognised for its robust financial services industry and economic competitiveness, together with a favourable tax regime, Switzerland continues to attract ambitious professionals and investors from around the world. The blossoming finance industry has earned an international reputation for innovation and digitalisation, supported by a highly competitive IT industry. Both the industries have created a pool of opportunities for those wishing to relocate to Switzerland.
