The FDFA websites

The FDFA websites are as diverse as the department itself and includes sites ranging from comprehensive dossiers on major subjects, such as European policy and development cooperation, to shorter sections on specialised autonomous divisions, such as the Swiss Maritime Navigation Office.

In addition to the website for the whole department, the FDFA posts webpages on Swiss European policy, development and cooperation, Switzerland’s contribution to the enlarged EU, international police missions, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and Switzerland’s communication abroad. Switzerland’s representations in more than 140 countries also have their own websites. The same goes for Switzerland’s missions and delegations to international organisations. Specialised autonomous divisions such as the Swiss Maritime Navigation Office also have webpages of their own.
