Geneva: Welcome

Dear Swiss Abroad,


The Canton and City of Geneva are delighted to welcome you to their SwissCommunity pages!


Geneva's humanitarian and humanist tradition needs no mention, but the bond between the Canton and its citizens abroad sometimes receives a lower profile. As citizens of the world, you take with you the values of Switzerland in general, and of the Canton of Geneva in particular, and disseminate them around the world. For this reason, our Canton has backed the introduction of e-voting and e-government since as long ago as 1998. We realize how important it is that every Swiss citizen's voice should be heard in our country and Canton. We wish to strengthen the links between us and the citizens of Geneva and, indeed, of the rest of Switzerland, who live abroad. This is because we know what a valuable asset you represent for our Canton. This, too, is why we are sending regular information about our Canton to all SwissCommunity members who request it, including political, economic, tourist and cultural information.


Enjoy navigating these Geneva pages of SwissCommunity and … "à bientôt" in our Canton.
