In the 90s, more than 80 partnerships were established between Swiss and Czech municipalities with the aim to assist with strengthening political structures and organisation of their functioning. Later on, the partnerships shifted rather to a social and cultural exchange.
During the preparation of the Swiss Contribution, various stakeholders in Switzerland (cities, trade unions) signalled their interest to intensify partnerships and implement joint projects with their Czech partner.
