Switzerland is a small, landlocked country in the heart of Europe. It has a strategic location at the crossroads of central Europe with many easily traversable passes ("Passstrasse", short term "Pass"). Switzerland is a major player in international trade and follows a liberal trade policy so, while this is not an ideal market for companies new to exporting, it has potential for more established exporters. The Swiss, who enjoy one of the world's highest levels of income per person, have a taste for well-designed, quality products. The climate is temperate but varies with altitude.

German mostly spoken by 66% of the population, French by 18% and Italian by 10%.Cheeses form an important part of the Swiss diet. Emmenthaler and Gruyère are combined with white wine to create fondue, which is served up in a vast pot and eaten with bread cubes. Rosti (crispy, fried, shredded potatoes) is German Switzerland's national dish. Fresh fish from the numerous lakes frequently crop up on menus, especially perch and trout. Swiss chocolate, excellent by itself, is often used in desserts and cakes.
