SNB reports Swiss economy showing modest improvement in first quarter, according to WSAU News/Talk 550 AM · 99.9 FM

In the first quarter of 2024, Switzerland’s economy showed slight improvement compared to the previous quarters. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) reported that several economic indicators suggest a more dynamic economic activity during this period.

Despite this growth, manufacturing sector remained stagnant while service sector experienced moderate expansion. Global demand in manufacturing was weak, and companies faced challenges due to the Swiss franc exchange rate. Manufacturing companies mentioned that they had little pricing flexibility, putting pressure on their profit margins.

The SNB recently cut its key interest rate for the first time in nine years and stated that business outlook is improving. Service sector firms are expecting robust growth to continue while manufacturing companies anticipate increases in sales.
