Forecast: Swiss economy in the coronavirus crisis

Economic forecast by the Federal Government’s Expert Group – June 2020

The Expert Group is largely confirming its previous assessment and expecting the sharpest fall in GDP in decades for 2020. The low point is set to be reached in the second quarter. Provided that further waves of the pandemic with severe containment measures do not materialise, the economy should begin to recover from the second half of the year.
