Against the Closing of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Chicago

This petition had 128 supporters

On behalf of the Swiss Community in the Chicago Region, we strongly urge you not to close the Consulate General of Switzerland in Chicago. For us, the Swiss Club of Chicago, the main purpose is to cultivate friendly Swiss – American relations. However, by your decision you are signaling to the community, especially to the American community, that you believe Chicago, President Barack Obama’s home town, is of no importance to Switzerland. The Consulate General is providing us, the Swiss community and our American friends, first class service
and a valuable connection to our home country and to the best travel and business destination in the world!
The Consulate General is providing a key representation in the third largest city in the US and is hosting the third largest business community in the United States. Chicago, the city that is home to the second busiest airport and even Swiss International Airlines just added a second daily flight. That said, Chicago is the center of the country, the hub for many airlines, home of many international organizations, Swiss & multinational corporations and is visited by Swiss compatriots more than ever before. Switzerland, that always embraces the underdog, must stay here to represent the Best!
