Overview of government finances

Swiss public finances: surpluses expected for cantons and social security funds


The financing statement of the general government (Confederation, cantons, municipalities and social security funds) is expected to show a slightly positive annual result of 0.8 billion for 2023, with rising expenditure and significantly below-average Swiss economic growth. Debt is likely to decline from 2023 onward. This is shown in the latest financial statistics figures of the Federal Finance Administration (FFA). However, the forecasts hinge on the impact of national and international developments, and are therefore subject to uncertainty.
