Switzerland belongs to those countries where the share of foreign trade in gross domestic product (GDP) is highest. The main partners in the cross-border trade of goods are the industrialised countries; the EU is particularly important.
In cooperation with the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS), the FSO makes available the foreign trade results. The foreign trade statistics are important to the FSO as a component of gross domestic product.
If you have questions regarding the foreign trade statistics please contact the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security’s Statistics Section.
