Despite the prevailing difficulties ahead of the Swiss economic recovery, and mainly due to the Franc's strength, the economy is still finding ways to continue the good recovery on the back of steady domestic recovery.

The Swiss Trade Surplus in May widened strongly and unexpectedly to 3.31 billion from the revised 1.44 billion from 1.52 billion. The surplus widened despite the drop in exports by 1.5% following a revised gain of 3.1% from 7.9% yet was compensated by the deep drop in imports by 8.4% from 5.9% revised gain from 4.0%.
