Celebrating Swiss Confederation in 2021 – Happy Swiss National Day
Switzerland celebrates its National Day on August 1 each year. On this occasion, I wish to extend my warm greetings to our Pakistani friends and my fellow Swiss citizens living in this beautiful country.
Though Covid-19 has caused sufferings worldwide, it has also brought the world together for the cause of humanity. On April 25, 2020, Switzerland projected the flag of Pakistan on its famous Matterhorn Mountain, to express support for the people of Pakistan in the fight against the pandemic. Switzerland is also engaged in continuous efforts with other countries for sustainable and inclusive recovery during the ongoing crisis.
2021 is another special year as we are still tackling the pandemic. Thanks to the digital revolution, people can connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world virtually despite difficult times.
To all of you who want to join us in celebrating our National Day safely from home, I invite you to visit our online meeting place ww.missione1agosto.org specially designed for this occasion and share with us “What’s Switzerland to you”. Explore, visualize and take part in online activities and avail a chance to win an online competition.
Let us celebrate Swiss National Day together and stay healthy and safe!
