The fourth quarter numbers of the year 2019 published by the Federal Statistical Office of Switzerland show that the total number of jobs in the country rose by 1.2% in comparison to the same quarter in 2018.
Not many countries can report uninterrupted growth for a decade. In the above quarterly comparison an open positions increase of 3.700 was recorded. This is 5% more than in the corresponding quarter a year earlier.
The Swiss economy is doing very well in general. The federal budget ended 2019 with another high ordinary surplus of CHF 3.1 billion (about EUR 2.91 at the beginning of March 2020). The figure is provisional at this stage. The outlook for 2021 – 2023 is seen as stable.
