The seventh edition, one can hardly believe it! Behind us, eight years of exciting work with every word and every detail, searching for new entertaining topics and also friendly teamwork. I would like to dedicate my first lines to teamwork and to express my sincere gratitude. BRAVO to everyone who worked on this edition and thank you for your professionalism!
Our partners together with us have decided to dedicate this edition to innovations, the most effective and reliable engine of progress that allows the most ambitious projects and ideas to come to fruition and mobilizes both mind and talent. Innovations optimise the present, change it for the better, and bring both material and spiritual satisfaction. Innovations come as a result of intellectual activity, imagination, creativity and practical experience. Innovative
and unconventional thinking not only reveals itself in business, politics, finances and law, but in all aspects of life including medicine and all forms of art. The ability to think “outside the box” and bringing the spirit of innovation to their work allows painters, musicians and other artists to create unique pieces of jewellery and horology, gastronomic masterpieces, unmatched programmes, festivals and exhibitions. The best of the best never ceases to amaze us!
Our magazine is exclusively “Swiss made”, at the same time being onehundred-per-cent oriented towards the Russian-speaking audience in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Therefore, it is important to tell you about the numerous benefits of living and working in Switzerland and the various opportunities for establishing and doing business here. The
Swiss Confederation consists of 26 cantons, each of them solving its own internal issues and having its own peculiar features as well as a number of benefits. For this reason, we are offering you a review of all the regions of Switzerland starting with the Canton of Vaud, home to our publishing house, to be followed by the other cantons. In this way, step-by-step, we are going to draw a general picture of modern Helvetia, which, we hope, will eventually become closer and clearer for you.
Do not be afraid of embracing change without losing sight of traditions!
Enjoy reading our 7th edition!
