Foreign trade

What's new?

At a glance

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.

Incooperation with the Federal Customs Administration (FCA), 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 Customs Administration’s Dissemination
and Analyses Section.
