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 performed slightly better compared to previous quarters, according to the Swiss National Bank (SNB). The central bank reported that many economic indicators suggest a more dynamic economic activity during this period.

Despite the moderate growth in the first quarter of 2024, manufacturing remained stagnant. Global demand in manufacturing continued to be weak, and companies were facing challenges due to the Swiss franc exchange rate. Manufacturing companies mentioned that they had little room for pricing flexibility, putting pressure on their profit margins.

However, service sector firms are expecting robust growth to continue, while manufacturing companies anticipate increases in sales. In an effort to support economic recovery, the SNB recently cut its key interest rate for the first time in nine years and reported that the business outlook is improving.
