 New figures from the Federal Statistics Office show across the country, over 320,000 enter to work.

The biggest number is for those living in France into the Geneva/Vaud region. Over 120,000 make the daily trip. That’s a rise of more than 3%. Also up is the number of Italian residents working in Ticino.

On the flip side, the number coming in from Germany is down by a percent at 66,000.

The rising numbers reverse a blip from last year which showed a decline in cross-border working.
