96th Congress of the Swiss Abroad in Visp/VS

From 10 to 12 August 2018 the 96

The theme of our upcoming congress, ‘Switzerland without Europe – Europe without Switzerland’, illustrates that the relationship between Switzerland and Europe is a topic that extends far beyond the Europe issue. It is a topic with global dimensions, not only because of potential consequences for Switzerland, but also because of implications for domestic and foreign policy, as well as the economy.

One of the highlights of the congress will be the speech by State Secretary Roberto Balzaretti, who was appointed director of the Directorate for European Affairs (DEA) by the Federal Council on 1 February 2018.

During the event the participants will have the opportunity to meet compatriots from around the world, inform themselves about the current news in Switzerland and talk about their own experiences. Stimulating speeches by interesting personalities from Swiss business and politics, as well as a varied social programme with folklore and living traditions, complete the programme of the 96th Congress of the Swiss Abroad.

Further information about registration is available on our website www.aso-kongress.ch.
