The Department of Economics of the Canton of Zurich and Zurich City Development, in cooperation with the Swiss Bankers Association, the Zurich Bankers Association, Zurich Tourism and Finance and Economy, are inviting you to the “Together for Zurich” conference, thereby launching a dialogue platform for a promising Zurich business location.

This year the dialogue will focus on dealing with the effects of the corona pandemic on the Zurich economic area. The conference wants to make a contribution to a strong financial and industrial center and gathers responsible persons from different areas of economy and society in order to approach the challenges from different perspectives.
