that the future of Geneva is strongly linked to the harmonious development
of its region, GRIF is extremely interested in the development of
the Swiss-French border region, where there is a very great imbalance
in the job/population ratio. In fact Geneva concentrates 75% of
jobs in this region but only 57% of its population! This gap has
greatly increased over the past 40 years: Pays de Gex saw
its population increase practically fourfold, that of the Nyon district
increased threefold, the inhabitants of the Genevan Haut-Savoyois
region doubled and … the population of the Geneva canton only
rose by 55%! Whilst the latter is considerable, it is nothing compared
to the other rates of growth in this Swiss-French border region!
The current shortage of properties on the Geneva real estate market,
due, of course, to the geographical narrowness of its territory
and the delay in the production of new dwellings, will probably
reinforce these disparities even more, inciting many people to work
in Geneva and live in neighbouring France.
Those with Swiss nationality (or the nationality of a country
bordering on Switzerland) and working in Geneva have had,
for a number of years now, the right to elect domicile in neighbouring
France. Bilateral agreements, which came into force on 1 June
2002, now allow all citizens of the European Union to live in France
and work in Geneva …
Today, in order to ensure harmonious development in this region
it is, therefore, essential for information to be exchanged and ideas to be shared between
the two sides of the border!
