International financial and monetary system


For Switzerland as a dynamic, open national economy with an important financial centre, a strong export industry and its own currency, a stable, international financial and monetary system is of prime importance. Aside from the implementation of a prudent national financial market policy, Switzerland supports international efforts to ensure the framework conditions for financial stability. 

Switzerland is working on the development and consistent implementation of standards in the most important international organisations and bodies of the financial sector. Aside from strengthening the international financial and monetary system, this involves creating an effective framework for stable, functional and open international financial markets. Particularly in the IMF, Switzerland is simultaneously working on ensuring the member states' monetary, budgetary, debt and financial sector policies are geared towards sustainability. 

In this way, Switzerland is making a constructive contribution to the design of the international financial system.
