Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Switzerland is facing difficult economic years due to an impending recession in Europe, the energy crisis and high inflation that undermines the purchasing power of consumers. Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. According to her, the economic problems in the euro countries are noticeable in Switzerland. The Alpine country is largely dependent on the rest of Europe for its trade. “I consider this situation very difficult. We feel the same way in Switzerland. Economically difficult years await us.” In September, the Swiss government lowered its growth forecasts due to the ”tense energy situation and sharp price increases”. The government now believes that growth will reach 2 percent this year, while in June it was expected to reach a plus of 2.6 percent. The Swiss economy is forecast to grow by 1.1% next year.
