SNB reports Swiss economy probably grew slightly in the first quarter

According to a report by the Swiss National Bank, Switzerland’s economy likely showed slightly better performance in the first quarter of 2024 compared to previous quarters. The central bank stated that many economic indicators suggest that economic activity was more dynamic during this period.

During the final three months of 2023, the Swiss economy grew by 0.3% quarter-on-quarter. Despite this moderate growth, manufacturing remained stagnant, while the service sector showed robust growth. Weak global demand and challenges related to the Swiss franc exchange rate were cited as concerns for manufacturing companies.

Manufacturers are facing pressure on their margins due to the lack of pricing latitude. The SNB recently cut its key interest rate for the first time in nine years and mentioned that the business outlook is improving. Service sector firms are expecting robust growth to continue, while manufacturing companies anticipate sales increases in the future.
