The FTA Monitor summarises the most important information on the use of individual Swiss free trade agreements.
In addition to general information on bilateral trade, the FTA Monitor presents key figures pertaining to the utilisation of the respective FTA. These include the preference utilisation rate for the last three years, the expected utilisation rate (based on the traded product mix with the relevant FTA partner) and the achieved customs savings – both as absolute figures and as proportions of the hypothetical customs duties (savings rate).
The FTA Monitor provides readers with an overview of all relevant figures on the use of individual FTAs.
The map shows which countries have a free trade agreement with Switzerland (either as part of EFTA or bilaterally).
The FTA Monitor for imports to Switzerland is available for every FTA. Where data was made available, the Monitor also contains information on Swiss exports to the partner country.
The FTA Monitor is also available for the following groups of countries: the European Union (EU), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the Southern African Customs Union (SACU).
