Switzerland has a prosperous and stable market economy. Low unemployment and a per capita GDP that's one of the highest in the world. This, along with economic and political stability, low corporate tax, and an excellent infrastructure - creates a highly competitive economy. It's banking secrecy makes the country highly desirable for investors, with banking as one of the most important industries in Switzerland. 

It's not a member of the EU but to boost its international competitiveness, Switzerland is now more in line with the EU's economic practices.

Why the letters CH for the Swiss domain? It stands for Confoederatio Helvetica, the Latin name for Switzerland. The choice is intended to demonstrate its neutrality with regard to the four official languages of the country; it’s also used on vehicle number plates.
