Martin Bangerter, Managing Director, Association of the Swiss Self-Medication Industry (ASSGP)

The exchange and networking with the AESGP team and the many colleagues from other countries are a great enrichment of my work. Many regulations and decisions in the EU have a direct or indirect impact on Switzerland. Our long-standing membership of the AESGP gives us the opportunity to be informed in good time and to contribute our input, even though we are not a member of the economic area. It is crucial that the concerns of the OTC and consumer health care industry have their own representation in Brussels through the AESGP. The results of the extensive work carried out over the last 60 years are impressive proof of this.
