Government Council of the Canton of Zurich
Words of welcome by the President
The Canton of Zurich is one of the most attractive places in the world to live and do business, and its government is doing everything in its power to keep it that way. We realise that the high quality of life here isn’t something that happens by chance or that we can take for granted. It’s the result of a culture of living and working together that has evolved over a long time and has become firmly rooted throughout our society. This culture is what makes good governance possible in the first place. For this reason we, the members of the Zurich government, see ourselves first and foremost as Zurich people who work with all the other citizens for the well-being of our beautiful canton. We’d like to give you an idea of the diverse areas in which the members of our government are involved on a daily basis – working for our business, education and healthcare; our infrastructures and natural environment; and our legal, civil and financial security. Thank you for your interest in the Canton of Zurich. By taking an interest you’re making your own important contribution to the canton.
Markus Kägi, President of the Government Council
