Neuchâtel, 21.10.2022

2020 was marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, which affected the entire regional economic fabric in Switzerland. National growth in gross domestic product (GDP) fell to –2.4 % at the previous year’s prices and almost all cantons recorded a decline in activity. Jura was the most affected (–8.5 %), followed by Neuchâtel (–6.5 %), Glarus (–5.3 %) and Ticino (–5.2 %). Only the cantons of Zug (1.6 %) and Schaffhausen (0.7 %) recorded an increase. These figures come from the latest estimates of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
