The delegates for regional economic relations represent the SNB in the various regions of Switzerland.
Their task is twofold: On the one hand, they conduct personal interviews with company leaders to gather information on the course of business, which forms the basis of economic reports for the attention of the Governing Board. These surveys are carried out in the form of structured company discussions.
On the other hand, the delegates function as ambassadors of the SNB, explaining, and thereby cultivating an understanding of its monetary policy, to economic associations, local officials, and the general public.
The delegates are supported in their tasks by the Regional Economic Councils.
