Kanton Zug

Kanton Zug
Attracting business leaders and engaging citizens
Zug is a success story, boasting Switzerland’s lowest overall tax burden coupled with long-term financial stability.

Challenge

Zug is the interface between urban Zurich and the rural cantons of central Switzerland. Its authorities must provide easy-to-access, unbureaucratic and business-friendly services in order to attract highly diversified industries and become a leading location for businesses. 

Solution

We helped Zug to create barrier-free access to information and services, thereby reducing the administrative workload for authorities and easing the lives of residents. The canton’s digital channels reflect Zug’s promise of being close to residents and free of bureaucracy.

Result

Today, Zug is home to 118,000 residents from 131 nations and 30,397 companies providing 104,000 jobs. Major international companies have their headquarters in Zug, turning the canton into a magnet for talent. Zug ranks highest in both the UBS cantonal competitiveness and Credit Suisse locational quality indicators.
