A sufficient supply of liquidity for the economy, a healthy currency and smoothly functioning financial markets are of crucial importance to every national economy – and all its economic sectors. The prosperity of a small country with few natural resources like Switzerland, whose economy is heavily integrated into the world economy and which must continuously prove itself in the international marketplace, is especially dependent on a stable international monetary system. Therefore, the Federal Finance Administration (FFA) also deals with European monetary integration issues and the implications for Switzerland.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) carries out studies on a broad range of topics and facilitates the exchange of information among countries. The FFA participates in various OECD working groups and committees. Under Current focus areas, the Federal Finance Administration provides information on developments to which it is currently paying particular attention.
