About the opportunity:
Since its initial launch in 2011, the book “Swiss Made – the untold story behind Switzerland’s success” has become the most authoritative publication about the origins of the competitiveness and the success story of Switzerland and its most important industries and companies. In the meantime, it has been translated into 9 languages (Arabic, Mandarin, English, French, German, Japanese, Polish, Vietnamese and recently Spanish) and so far, has sold over 250.000 copies in total. With the forthcoming Korean, Italian and Portuguese versions, Swiss Made promotes Swiss achievements and companies in a language area covering major parts of the world’s population.
The book enjoys the support and is widely distributed by representatives of Swiss government and parliament as well as by over 60 Swiss embassies worldwide as a diplomatic gift. One recent example is Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis giving the book to his peers in Chile, Uruguay and Brazil during his trip to Latin America in April 2019 (here with the Chilean foreign Secretary Ms Torres).
