Although Switzerland is Bosnia and Herzegovina's most important EFTA trading partner, the volume of trade between the two countries is relatively modest. Switzerland's main exports are pharmaceutical products and vehicles, while it primarily imports textiles, furniture and base metals. Although Switzerland is one of the ten largest investors in Bosnia and Herzegovina, most investments are made by international companies based in Switzerland.
There is also potential to increase trade and investment given the extensive and well-integrated Bosnian diaspora in Switzerland.
Economic cooperation between the two countries is regulated by a number of agreements on air transport, agriculture, finance and the movement of persons and goods, for example.
