International Trade Forum

While global competition remains alive and well, "globalization" is undergoing some fundamental changes: New trade impediments and geopolitical risks are shaping daily international operations. Against this backdrop, Swiss SMEs have proven agile, and are emerging from the current crises with reorganized value chains that will make them more resilient and competitive over the long term. The International Trade Forum brings together valuable know-how about internationalization and the entrepeneurial experiences of the business community to explore the options for internationally operating SMEs and uncover new opportunities.
