Population in Switzerland
Switzerland - PopulationThe economic panorama appears increasingly bleak in the second quarter, following an expected contraction in activity in the first quarter amid slumping industrial output. In April, the manufacturing PMI fell to a near 11-year low, while the services PMI hit a new record low as business activity and demand evaporated in the face of the pandemic. As a consequence, the unemployment rate climbed in the same month as the labor market continued to display significant damage. Furthermore, exports nosedived in April on limited external demand, while the KOF barometer for May hit a fresh low amid crumbling economic sentiment. More positively, the country entered the second phase of the easing of lockdown measures in mid-May, with a further lifting of domestic restrictions set to come on 8 June. Moreover, international borders should open in mid-June, boding well for all-important tourism revenues.
