fhnw.leadIn this paper, the competitiveness of the Swiss agriculture- and food sector is estimated with a special focus on the vegetable producers. In order to assess the degree of competitiveness, the Swiss sector is compared to the Dutch counterpart.
fhnw.initialPositionThe Swiss agricultural sector is partially protected by tariff and non-tariff quotas. Competition with foreign vegetable producers is therefore on a comparatively low level. The goal of this paper is to gain an overview of the competitiveness of the Swiss agricultural sector with a focus on the vegetable producers. As the preconditions in the Netherlands and Switzerland seem to be similar and the produced goods are partially the same, these two sectors were compared.
fhnw.procedureIn order to estimate the competitiveness, SWOT analyses for the agriculture- and food sectors of Switzerland and the Netherlands were created. To do so, both macro- and microeconomic influences on the price-competitiveness were considered.
fhnw.resultsThe SWOT analysis showed, that Swiss vegetable producers face significantly higher production costs. Higher minimum wages in Switzerland and a limited access to the European market are the main disadvantages they face when comparing the production costs. In addition, differences between Switzerland and the Netherlands with regards to the direct payments are presented.
