Speech for 1 August


Traditionally, the speech of the respective President of the Swiss Confederation is broadcast on radio and television in three national languages on 1 August.

President of the Swiss Confederation, Ueli Maurer, will emphasise in his speech on 1 August 2019 that Switzerland's successful model must be seen as an inheritance. "We inherited the most important Swiss values such as freedom and security, independence and self-determination from our forefathers. Inherited only for a limited time, to be passed on to our children later. Our inheritance is very valuable and precious. Let us celebrate together a piece of our homeland and remember that all this is not to be taken for granted."
