Topics raised during the meeting included the eurozone currency crisis, multilateral cooperation and the challenges relating to international regulatory activities facing the financial centres of both countries. The meeting also provided an opportunity to exchange views on each country's respective European policy and discuss international developments.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Switzerland enjoy a long tradition of excellent and friendly bilateral relations. Multilingualism, the natural tendency to seek political consensus, a financial centre of international importance and the proximity of the government to the people are just some of the many characteristics shared by the two countries.
