New Swiss Ambassador in London
It is with great pleasure that we welcome the announcement of Markus Leitner as the new Swiss Ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, based in London from August 2021. We look forward very much to working together with Ambassador Leitner in the coming years and to maintaining the excellent working relationship that the BSCC has with the Swiss Embassy in London.
At the same time we would like to say a most sincere thank you to Ambassador Alexandre Fasel, who has been a very great supporter of the Chamber over his four years tenure as the Swiss Ambassador to the UK. The Federal Council has appointed Ambassador Alexandre Fasel, an experienced and acknowledged expert on International Geneva, as the Switzerland’s first Special Envoy for Science Diplomacy. We wish him all the best in his exciting and critical new role and we are hoping to see him as our guest at many future BSCC events.
