State-of-the-art services and infrastructure

Mobility and security at the center of Europe

Punctuality, stability and reliability are characteristics which can be used to describe Switzerland’s infrastructure.  The Greater Geneva Bern area has a dense network of motorways and railroads that link Western Switzerland with the country’s principal cities as well as with France, Italy, Germany and Austria.  The telecommunications infrastructure is excellent and the energy supply is abundant.

Excellent connectivity

Switzerland is a leader with regard to the quality and the range of its information technologies.  The support of the government and market competition between the telecommunications providers play a beneficial role in the security of the IT infrastructure.  Despite the difficulties caused by the country’s topography, the mobile telephone network has optimal coverage.  ISDN and broadband connections ensure communications of the highest quality.

A reliable and stable electricity network

Energy distribution across the GGBa is remarkable.  The region’s energy needs are met by a reliable and stable electricity network providing a dense and decentralized coverage from a variety of electrical substations.  At the same time, natural gas, oil and other sources of energy are available at competitive prices in the region.  The integration of the Swiss energy network into the European network ensures the energy supply even during periods of peak consumption.  The GGBa is also active in the field of renewable energies, such as hydraulic energy, solar energy and wind power.

An efficient healthcare system

Switzerland’s healthcare system is one of the best in the world.  The foundation of the system is the obligatory basic insurance and includes the option to purchase complementary insurance to cover specific needs.  Every person is insured, giving them access to competent healthcare professionals, whether in a doctor’s office or in a hospital.  Each canton of the GGBa has full service hospitals as well as regional hospitals and private clinics.
