“In Switzerland, there was a direct interference in our democracy and our cantonment system,” he added.
Martin Jansen, CEO of financial software company Ecofin, insisted that Switzerland be allowed to be different from the non-compliant framework agreement.

He added: “People believe that Switzerland’s position with the European Union was very weak. But there is probably a lot to look forward to. ”
