Switzerland’s contribution to the enlarged EU

On 3 December 2019, the Swiss Parliament approved a second Swiss contribution to certain EU Member States in the form of two framework credits, one for cohesion and the other for migration. With this contribution, Switzerland aims to reduce economic and social disparities and to improve the management of migration flows in certain EU Member States. 

The Parliament also decided that no commitments should be made on the basis of these framework credits if and as long as the EU adopts discriminatory measures against Switzerland.

At its meeting on 4 June 2021, the Federal Council decided to prepare a message on the release of the corresponding framework credits. This message will be dealt with in the autumn 2021 session of Parliament.
