Switzerland congratulates Ukraine and Germany for hosting the 3rd edition of the URC Conference in Berlin, building on their previous work in Lugano. Swiss commitments include supporting the private sector in reconstruction, promoting sustainable conditions for SMEs, and creating a new mechanism to protect investments against war risks.

Switzerland will join the SME and Skills alliances at the URC Conference. Digital transformation is essential for Ukraine's resilience, with Switzerland announcing continued support and expansion in this area.

The Lugano Principles tie Ukraine's recovery to reform processes, with Switzerland participating in the IMF's Ukraine Capacity Development Fund. Switzerland plans to invest at least 5 billion CHF in Ukraine over the next 12 years.

They will host a High-Level Conference for Peace in Ukraine next weekend at the request of President Zelensky. The goal is to shift from rebuilding after the war to building peace.
