Sponsors, actors and funding instruments of the swiss tourism policy

The Confederation’s tourism policy, including its supporters, actors and funding instruments, is embedded in the Swiss tourism system. The new tourism strategy aims to ensure it stays that way.

In a market economy system, the Confederation’s tourism policy will continue to assume specific tasks in coordination with the cantons, communes and the economic sectors which depend on tourism. The Figure shows the key supporters, actors and funding instruments of the Swiss tourism policy.

At federal level, SECO is responsible for implementing tourism policy. In addition, four funding instruments are available implementing the Confederation’s tourism policy: Innovation promotion, cooperation and knowledge building in tourism (Innotour), Switzerland Tourism, the Swiss Society for Hotel Credit (SGH) and the New Regional Policy (NRP).
