During the summer break, a group of business people established the "Business Club Luxemburg-Schweiz”.
The new business club was established to act as local point of reference for private organisations and individuals, having a commercial interest in both countries. The business club will facilitate and foster trade relationships of various industries between Luxembourg and Switzerland. The multisector members group will encourage stimulating discussions as well as synergies between members.
Present at the establishment were the Luxembourg Ambassador to Switzerland, Jean-Claude Meyer, together with Jeannot Erpelding and Steven Koener from Luxembourg’s Chamber of Commerce.
The Ambassador stating: “We very much welcome this initiative, especially as until today, we couldn’t refer Luxembourgish organisations to a local point of contact when expanding into Switzerland.”
Jeannot Erpelding adding: "Although the relationships between Switzerland and Luxembourg's financial institutions are very strong, other sectors are unfortunately often overshadowed. We strongly support this opportunity to bring representatives from various industries together."
François Muller, chairman of the club, celebrates the establishment by saying: “We have put together a dynamic team with diverse backgrounds - with the support of the Luxembourg embassy and the Chamber of Commerce, we are confident to be able to make a positive contribution to business relations between our two countries.”
The business club will organise a monthly networking dinner in a casual set-up, as well as educational events and professional trainings. The business club is now open for applications from interested individuals and organisations from any sector or industry having an interest in both countries, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
