Swiss National Bank poses major challenges to export industry

Not only will this dim the growth prospects, but it may also lead to structural adjustments in the companies of our industry.

We hope the Swiss National Bank will prevent an excessive strengthening of the Swiss franc. Against this new background, additional burdens on the economy in the form of new regulation projects, such as for example the Energy Strategy 2050, should be avoided by all means.
