Switzerland has fared relatively well during the recent economic crisis. It is the UK’s third largest market outside the European Union, after the USA and China. British exports grew by 21% in 2012 to £6.5bn - more than Britain exported to other major markets such as India and Japan. In 2011, the Swiss bought £9.4bn of services from the UK – more than other major consumers of British services such as Canada and Australia.
The exchange rate makes the Swiss market favourable for British exporters. The Swiss purchasing power is one of the world’s highest. English is widely spoken, and the UK is less than two hours away by plane.
