Enduring, special economic ties

The ties between Switzerland and Singapore go back a long way and have become closer as seen by the huge presence of Swiss companies here.

The old Singapore Diethelm office building at Market Street. Swiss trading firms like Diethelm, Keller and Zuellig were already active in Asia during colonial times.

THE strong economic ties between Singapore and Switzerland may nowadays almost look natural; they are very impressive indeed. But it should not be forgotten that these broad and strong economic relations took some time to be built up.

Thanks to Swiss trading firms like Diethelm, Keller...
