The project about the Gotthard area
Four regions, one project
The San Gottardo Program (PSG) is a common project of the cantons of Uri, Ticino, Valais and Grisons and has been responsible for the regional development of the Gotthard region, which includes Goms, since 2008. With the PSG 2020-2023 implementation program, the four cantons have submitted another four-year program to the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO that crosses cantonal borders. The federal government is supporting the PSG for the fourth time with considerable funds. With this joint strategy, they want to develop the area around the Gotthard with the regions of Uri, Bellinzona and Valli, Surselva and Goms into a coherent living and economic area. The overarching character makes this implementation program a model case within the framework of the New Regional Policy of the Swiss Confederation (NRP). With the NRP, which came into force in Switzerland on January 1, 2008, the federal government and the cantons support mountain areas, the wider rural area and border regions in their regional economic development.
