Key quotes

“Switzerland may be witnessing a faster vaccine rollout than near neighbours, such as Italy, Germany and France, but that will not preclude the economy from seeing challenges extend into 2021, as Q1 will prove compromised by lockdown measures.”

The national central bank remains orientated towards limiting CHF gains, to maintain export competitiveness and limit disinflationary pressures.”
