Canton Zurich

The Canton of Zurich - The economic motor of Switzerland

The Canton of Zurich is the hub of choice for numerous multinational companies and accounts for more than a fifth of Switzerland's GDP.   

As one of the world's best places for quality of life and with top universities including ETH Zurich, R&D centers like Google and IBM Research can draw on a reservoir of skilled local and international professionals. Home to vibrant cities steeped in culture and an awardwinning international airport, Zurich also offers a balanced mix of innovation-driven industry clusters. The largest cluster is finance followed by ICT, life sciences and cleantech. Zurich's thriving life sciences cluster features a high share of innovative medical firms and university spin-off activities.  

The Business and Economic Development Division of the Canton of Zurich is your point of contact for business guidance, including location evaluations, setting up a business and local cluster integration.  


Unser Kanton hat sich in den vergangenen Jahren im internationalen Standortwettbewerb eine hervorragende Position erarbeitet. Machen Sie sich ein Bild von den Vorzügen unseres Standortes. Gerne unterstützen wir Sie bei Ihrem Anliegen. Zürich: World Class – Swiss made.
