Alliance Sud claims that 'Swiss NCP lags behind'

Michel Egger Jan 14, 2013

Michel Egger critically analyses the Swiss NCP, pointing at several weak points of this NCP in comparison to other NCPs.

One of the Swiss NCP's weaknesses is that it is poorly staffed (80 per cent) and is located in the Department for Investment and Multinational Enterprises of the State Secretariat for the Economy (SECO), which can create a danger of conflict of interests. Furthermore, when companies do not want to collaborate, the NCP closes cases without issuing final statements with breaches of the Guidelines or conducting research on the alleged violations. Furthermore, Egger claims that the Swiss NCP falls short when it comes to transparency.
