Happy new year dear readers! 2013 has arrived – and I wish you only the best.

Looking back to 2012 – according to the Blog INFOCUBE by Orell Füssli Wirtschaftsinformationen (original article is in German here ) – 39’365 companies have been newly registered – less then 2011 but still quite a number considering the crisis.

One number has risen – the percentage of foreigners that have launched their companies in Switzerland! Despite the economic climate Switzerland is still an attractive location for businesses and hopefully will remain so in the future.
