The framework conditions

The CCIG focuses on four framework conditions that make Geneva a business-friendly location; 

  1. Urban planning : On the one hand companies need premises at an affordable cost in well equipped zones and on the other, the Canton must be able to provide accommodation for a larger proportion of its working population (Issue manager: Charles Lassauce);

  2. Energy : essential to industrial production, its availability and cost play a major role in the competitiveness of companies (Issue manager: Nathalie Hardyn).

  3. Fiscal policy : a competitive tax rate encourages entrepreneurial boldness; with financial resources available to them, companies invest and create jobs (Issue manager: Charles Lassauce) ;

  4. Mobility : an essential condition for all commercial transactions. Poor mobility increases costs to businesses as well as to individuals (Issue manager: Nathalie Hardyn) .
