Important questions about Swiss Amcham

The Swiss Amcham is a business association under Swiss law. As the largest association of multinational companies in Switzerland (irrespective of their nationality and size), it caters for the needs of companies. Swiss Amcham has a clear focus on businesses but not on private issues of individuals.

The Swiss Amcham is a private organization with approx. 1700 corporate members. While 20% of the member companies are based in the U.S. (with local Chapters in Boston, New York, Atlanta, Miami, and San Francisco), the vast majority of members are based in Switzerland. 70% of the member companies are Swiss companies, 30% foreign companies (mostly American). Swiss Amcham covers all areas of the private sector and does not accept any subsidies from any government entity. The numerous Chapters and Committees contribute substantially to the Chamber’s activities and programs. Swiss Amcham’s governing body is the Board of Directors, elected by Amcham’s members at the Annual General Meeting.

Swiss Amcham identifies and addresses all barriers to free movement of goods, services, people and investments between Switzerland and the USA. It aims to reduce barriers and difficulties for multinational companies in Switzerland (irrespective of their size or nationality), thus strengthening the position of Switzerland as an internationally attractive business location.

Swiss Amcham does not provide any services for individuals in personal matters such as visas, travels, job openings, work permits, taxes, real-estate, inheritance issues etc. The association solely deals with questions concerning businesses of their members.
