Present in the Federal City of Bern

The Canton of Basel-Stadt is working on a national level to strengthen the championing of the location and the metropolitan area of Basel, as well as the entire Northwest Switzerland in the Federal City of Bern. It is important to gain the support of the decision-makers for the concerns of the Basel region with the most compelling arguments, at the right time.

The Canton of Basel-Stadt is also strongly represented in the Federal City of Bern.

To achieve this goal, the Canton of Basel-Stadt works closely together with legislative players (National Council and Council of States, commissions), executive players (Northwest Switzerland Government Conference, Conferences of Cantonal Directors) as well as with associations, the media and the federal administration.

The advocacy of cantonal interests includes, among other things, the subject areas of traffic and regional planning, research, universities and cutting-edge medicine as well as economic, social and financial conditions. You can find more information here.
