The Swiss Commodity Trading Association SUISSENÉGOCE is a non-profit, non-political organisation. It represents the interests of those involved in trading, shipping, banks involved in the financing of raw materials, insurance companies, law firms, and affiliated service companies.
GTSA, the Geneva-based maritime trade and chartering association, was founded in 2006. In 2014, GTSA became national and took the name STSA to offer a greater representation of the industry on a national level. STSA encompasses the three regional associations (GTSA, ZCA in Zug and LCTA in Ticino) and consists of more than 190 member companies and institutions, as well as around 100 experts involved in the association's various working groups.
Today, our association is known as SUISSENÉGOCE and has a new logo. A new image that highlights the transformation of the industry as a whole: the commodity trading industry will be communicating with Swiss citizens and engaging in public debate. The different colours of our logo represent the different commodities: green and brown for agricultural products, grey and dark blue for energy, metals & minerals, and light blue for maritime transport, which is of prime importance for all commodities.
“I want to make Switzerland as proud of its traders as it is of its cheese makers.”
Among its members, SUISSENÉGOCE promotes diversification and encourages companies of all sizes to participate. Diversification of the sector ensures healthy competition between the economic actors. The political authorities as well as the wider society are sensitive to a competitive market, which avoids oligopolistic positions. SUISSENÉGOCE listens to its members to define work themes in order to promote a better understanding of the commodity trading industry and an innovative approach to business. The members have the opportunity to take part in the related working groups to address specific business matters.
