MISSION

The Swiss-American
Chamber of Commerce

The Swiss American Chamber is a not-for-profit organization. Its primary mission is to promote business and trade relations between the USA and Switzerland and to facilitate networking events, as well as relevant presentations and panel discussions to its members.

The Florida Chapter brings business leaders together to facilitate contacts and provide networking platforms for Swiss businesses in Florida and U.S. businesses with interests in Switzerland. The Chapter represents the mutual interests of members and takes action to further their interests by facilitating the mobility of member firms and their employees in both countries.

In addition, the Chapter promotes both countries as advantageous places to do business by fostering good corporate citizenship to benefit the communities in which members do business.
