On 17 May in Rome, Switzerland and Italy signed an agreement for the second Swiss contribution to the migration framework credit. CHF 20 million will be allocated to fund accommodation and care for unaccompanied minor asylum seekers in Italy.

This contribution is part of Switzerland's efforts to address migration in Europe. State Secretary Christine Schraner Burgener and Maria Teresa Sempreviva signed the agreement.

Switzerland's CHF 190 million contribution will benefit selected EU member states, including Italy. The funds will be used until 2029 to support EU states heavily impacted by migration.

Switzerland is already collaborating with Greece, Cyprus, and Italy on bilateral programs. The agreement outlines the cooperation principles and focus with Italy.

The CHF 20 million will help Italy expand its reception capacities for the growing number of arrivals, particularly unaccompanied minors. Switzerland and Italy aim to enhance cooperation on migration issues, focusing on accelerated asylum procedures.

The Swiss contribution reinforces solidarity with EU states facing significant migration challenges. The funds will be directed towards strengthening migration management structures to prevent irregular secondary migration, covering areas like asylum procedures, infrastructure, and integration measures..
