The framework conditions

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

 

  • 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.
  • Energy

    Essential to industrial production, its availability and cost play a major role in the competitiveness of companies.

  • Fiscal policy

    A competitive tax rate encourages entrepreneurial boldness; with financial resources available to them, companies invest and create jobs .
  • Mobility

    An essential condition for all commercial transactions. Poor mobility increases costs to businesses as well as to individuals.

In addition to these key areas, the Chamber monitors and is active in the following areas :

  • Banking and finance
  • Retail
  • International trade
  • Sustainable development
  • Employment and training
  • Environment
  • Public finance
  • Housing policy
  • Tourism
  • Air transportation
