Swiss Agreement With The Eu

In Uncategorized on 13/04/2021 at 06:53

The failure of contract negotiations would have negative consequences for Switzerland and an incalculable risk. On the one hand, it would be impossible to conclude other market access agreements with the EU and, on the other hand, there may even be a risk that existing agreements will be abandoned or suspended. The EU and its 28 members are Switzerland`s main partners. Relations between Switzerland and the EU have developed through an ever-closer network of sectoral agreements. The challenges of internal security and migration require international cooperation. Switzerland works closely with European countries in the areas of justice, police, visas and asylum. Since 2008, Switzerland has contributed 1.3 billion francs to various projects aimed at reducing economic and social inequalities in an enlarged Eu. [16] An example of the use of this money is the station in Legionowo, Poland, built with CHF 9.6 million from the Swiss budget. [17] The agreement on the free movement of persons between Switzerland and the EU has been in force since 1 June 2002 as an important element of bilateral agreements I.

Until June 2019, the Federal Council has not reached any valid compromises either with internal partners such as trade unions and representatives of Swiss companies, or with the outgoing President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker. EU member states also said that no further compromise would be possible on the text of the proposed framework agreement with Switzerland. This is why Brussels has not extended its market equivalency to the Swiss stock exchange because of this failure of negotiations between Switzerland and the EU and, for a counter-measure, the Regulation of the Federal Council of November 2018, which limits the future exchange of most Swiss shares traded by the EU to the Six Swiss Exchange in Zurich, has been implemented. [20] [21] In February 2014, a federal popular initiative “against mass immigration,” Swiss voters narrowly approved measures to restrict the free movement of foreign nationals to Switzerland. The European Commission said it needed to examine the impact of the result on EU-Swiss relations. [14] Due to Switzerland`s refusal to grant the free movement of people to Croatia, the EU has only accepted Switzerland`s access to the Erasmus programme for student mobility as a `partner country`, as opposed to a `partner country`, and the EU has frozen negotiations on access to the EU electricity market. On 4 March 2016, Switzerland and the EU signed a treaty extending the agreement on the free movement of persons in Croatia, which led to the full readmission of Switzerland to Horizon 2020, a European financial framework for research and development. [37] The treaty was ratified on 26 April by the National Council[39] provided that a solution was found for the implementation of the 2014 referendum.

[40] The contract was adopted in December 2016. [40] This allowed Switzerland to return to Horizon 2020 on 1 January 2017. Voters overwhelmingly decided to renew the agreement on free movement and extend the right to work in Switzerland to citizens of Bulgaria and Romania.
