They are sticking to their previous forecast, as they announced to the media on Tuesday. The Swiss economy cannot escape the global economic slowdown and is only growing at a below-average rate.

«The high energy prices and the rising cost of living are also having an effect in this country. At the same time, export momentum is declining because the high inflation in most trading partners is leading to a painful loss of purchasing power in households and is slowing down the economy,” it said.
