The Swiss economy is predicted to perform better in the first quarter of 2024, according to data from the Swiss National Bank (SNB). Economic indicators suggest that the first quarter will see more dynamic economic activity. In the last three months of 2023, the Swiss economy grew by 0.3% on a quarterly basis.

Despite this growth, manufacturing companies are facing challenges related to weak global demand and pressure on their margins due to challenges with the Swiss franc exchange rate. The service sector has been driving moderate economic growth, with firms in this sector expecting continued strong growth in the future. However, manufacturing companies expect sales to increase and are struggling with prices.

The SNB recently cut its key interest rate for the first time in nine years and reported that the business outlook was improving. This positive outlook points to potential improvements in economic conditions for Switzerland in the near future. With continued strong growth expected from service sector firms and increasing sales from manufacturing companies, it seems that Switzerland’s economy is set to continue performing well in the coming months.
