We bring tourism into politics
The Swiss Tourism Federation keeps the political authorities and circles informed about current topics.
It takes a stand in current issues and provides community relations to call attention to the importance of tourism as a branch of the economy.
The political activities of the STF
We represent the interests of tourism and its service providers. We find our counterparts in politics, the authorities and the general public. We want to
- increase our international ability to compete
- continuously improve the quality of tourism
Where market-based solutions result in the distortion of competition, the STF supports the promotion of tourism by the government, the cantons and the communities. The STF takes a stand on current issues related to tourism.
The STF works closely with the members of the federal parliament who are interested in tourism. It runs the Secretariat of the Parliamentary Group for Tourism PGT.
