The Americas Strategy enables the Federal Council to hone its policy towards the Americas by setting priorities and focusing on those countries in which Switzerland has the greatest and most diverse interests. The United States occupies the most prominent position thanks to its great economic and geopolitical weight. The Federal Council also sees potential for intensifying relations with Canada. Switzerland also has significant interests in Latin America and the Caribbean.
