The government has pledged CHF7.8 million ($8.5 million) over the next three years to help Swiss companies participate in major infrastructure projects abroad.

The aim is to coordinate cooperation between the private sector and the government administration to help Swiss companies gain international visibility and identify possible business opportunities.

The Covid-19 pandemic has boosted the demand for sustainable solutions, and so-called “Re-Start” initiatives have increased competition, according to a statement by the economics ministry on Wednesday.

As part of the cooperation, including the export risk insuranceExternal link and the Switzerland Global EnterpriseExternal link export promotion agency, a digital platform will be set up.
