Für ICC Switzerland ist die AHV-Steuervorlage notwendig, um den international ausgerichteten Unternehmen in der Schweiz Rechts- und Investitionssicherheit zu geben. Die aktuellen Steuerprivilegien sind international nicht mehr haltbar und müssen abgeschafft werden. Die AHV-Steuervorlage macht dies im Rahmen der föderalen Steuerpolitik und stärkt somit den Wirtschaftsstandort Schweiz. ICC Switzerland empfiehlt für die Abstimmung vom 19. Mai 2019 ein klares JA.

Enforcement, Setting Aside and Related Treaty Claims: A View From Europe
This Conference, which marks the 100th anniversary of the ICC, is a “must attend” for arbitration practitioners and more generally dispute resolution professionals, who want to keep up to date with the latest developments and increasing challenges when it comes to enforcement and setting aside of arbitral awards.
With a highly interactive format and dynamic presentations from real thought leaders in arbitration, this premier event of its kind in Switzerland will bring together panelists (arbitration counsel, arbitrators, and academics) from all over Europe to discuss recent trends and decisions in relation to the setting aside and enforcement of arbitral awards, and the circumstances under which the violation of the New York Convention could amount to a violation of investment protection standards.
