Re: No country is perfect but...

Switzerland to India:
Response to problem, disasters etc .. problems like http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/l...g/15291183.cms


India to Switzerland:
Tollerence/Patience in people until the issue is fixed.

Just wondering if something similar happens in Switzelrand then how would people react ?

Re: No country is perfect but...

CH to Italy:

*direct democracy, higher decision-making powers to regions rather than to the central government
*the excellent public transportation system, on time and reliable
*more job opportunities for people
*higher respect for the law and the community, and harsher punishment for criminals

Italy to CH:

*more of the less known regional culinary specialties of the country
*the ability to not accept your "fate" and "how things are done", but still smile, work hard, and do your best even when all odds are against you (and the whole world thinks you're some sort of cartoon country)
*more and cheaper opera houses
*the sea
