Swiss Economy Expected to Show Improvement in First Quarter, According to SNB

Switzerland’s economy is expected to have performed better in the first quarter of 2024 compared to previous quarters, according to a report by the Swiss National Bank (SNB). The central bank mentioned that many economic indicators point to slightly more dynamic economic activity during this period.

In the last quarter of 2023, the Swiss economy grew by 0.3% quarter-on-quarter. However, weak global demand and challenges related to the Swiss franc exchange rate were identified as concern areas for manufacturers, which continued to stagnate. Companies in the manufacturing sector are struggling with limited pricing flexibility, putting pressure on their profit margins.

The recent cut in key interest rates by the SNB, the first in nine years, indicates a focus on improving the business outlook. While service sector firms are expecting robust growth to continue, manufacturing companies are anticipating increased sales due to improved conditions caused by lower interest rates and more favorable exchange rates. The central bank’s report suggests a cautiously optimistic view of Switzerland’s economic performance in the first quarter of 2024.
