The last few years have brought major changes to Switzerland’s general economic situation. Mountainous and rural regions often fi nd it harder to cope with this structural change than the stronger central areas. The federal government’s regional policy is designed to help rural, mountainous and border areas to implement their development programmes. Control lies with the cantons, who work with the regions affected to develop strategies to strengthen their economies.
