The Swiss Village is an initiative by the Representative Office in Jakarta (Indonesia) of Forward SA in Lausanne (Switzerland), dedicated to the promotion of Swiss and European companies in Indonesia, as well as of Indonesian companies in Switzerland and Europe.

The involvement of The Swiss Village and his partners in social events, professional fairs and conferences, as well as the organisation of tailor-made events and seminars, contributes to enhance the level of exchanges, and to raise awareness about available solutions across the regions.

The Swiss Village is run by Selim R. Chanderli and Indira C. Tasan, the co-founders of Forward SA (the editor of BANCO, the Swiss Asset Management Magazine) in 1995. The company has grown to become the Forward Group. With activities that now go beyond news and events, we also offer services tailored to match the objectives of our customers. Building on a deep knowledge of the finance and investment industry, Forward Group has created a Communication & Consulting branch, Forward Services & Consulting Ltd. (based in London, UK), whose aim is to help finance businesses enhance their reputation, reach out to their key prospects, expand company awareness and deal with a crisis or an unforeseen event. Forward Services & Consulting Ltd. also includes a highly specialized financial translation agency that supplies state-of-the-art texts that read like originals, from articles intended for publication in the media to books, annual reports and websites.
