The Swiss economy continued to recover in the third quarter. Turnover increased both in the services sector and in manufacturing and construction.

Despite the positive development, infrastructure utilisation remains low, especially in the services sector. The fact that international travel is still subject to major restrictions is having a hindering effect. Utilisation in manufacturing, on the other hand, is slightly higher than average, underpinned by robust global economic demand. Utilisation in the construction sector is described as normal.

Procurement bottlenecks, already seen as a major challenge last quarter, have continued to become more pronounced, becoming more widespread and increasingly leading to restrictions and delays in production.
