The outlook has become gloomier

Economic forecast by the Federal Government’s Expert Group – autumn 2019
The Expert Group is revising its expectations for the Swiss economy in the coming quarters slightly downwards. Weaker development than previously as-sumed is anticipated for the global economy and uncertainty is high, which is weighing on the export economy and investment.
