Switzerland India, Jannuzzi Smith

The Swiss government agency Presence Switzerland – responsible for the coordination of Switzerland’s activities abroad – has appointed Jannuzzi Smith to develop a visual identity and communication programme to mark the 60th anniversary of its recognition of India as an independent state. Switzerland recognised India as a sovereign country when India gained independence in 1947. In 1948, the two countries signed a Treaty of Friendship, which can be regarded – from an Indian perspective – as the first bilateral agreement of this type. The 60th anniversary of the signing of this treaty by the two countries will be marked by celebrations in 2008, beginning in autumn 2007. The programme is to run until December 2010.
