Promoting business is one of the Canton of Zurich Office for Economic Development and Labour’s (AWA) most important areas of activity.
The Office for Economic Development and Labour is a prime source of information for entrepreneurs looking to do business in Opfikon or anywhere else in the Canton of Zurich. Our “Location Development” team is here to assist businesses interested in Zurich as a location. To enable small and medium-sized companies to realise their goals quickly and efficiently, our “SME-services” provide assistance not only with procedural matters but also with all operational aspects of setting up a company. The division “Employment of Foreign Nationals” issues work permits, while the “European Agency” handles inquiries into the relations between Switzerland and the rest of Europe. The cantonal promotional location services are your first port of call for questions about locating your business in Zurich. They are also the gateway to both domestic and international organisation networks.
The Canton of Zurich's Economic Development Department provides all the information you need about locating your business in Zurich and founding a company. We function as a door opener to domestic and international organizations in our network.
