Public procurement

Switzerland’s FTAs set out the principles and processes of public procurement and contain obligations regarding access to the parties’ public procurement markets. In particular, they improve transparency and legal security. Building on the principles of reciprocity and non-discrimination, they aim to improve SMEs’ export opportunities and competitiveness and counter the risk of potential discrimination against Swiss providers in favour of those from other trade partners. The provisions on public procurement are based on the WTO’s 2012 Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA).
