Ladies and gentlemen

It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to the Swiss National Bank's news conference. I will begin by explaining our monetary policy decision and our assessment of the economic situation. I will then hand over to Fritz Zurbrügg, who will present this year's Financial Stability Report. After that, Andréa Maechler will review developments on the financial markets. Finally, we will - as ever - be pleased to take your questions.
