Transcript of Switzerland

Switzerland Hi my name is Aisha, and I am doing a project on Switzerland. This Prezi is going to show you what Canada and Switzerland import and export to each other. And some history about Switzerland. Switzerland was founded in the year of 1291 on August 1st by three cantons by the name of Uri, Schywyz and Unterwalden ("Uri-Kantone"). But it wasn't until 1648 that Switzerland declared their independence and became a liberated country.

many things such as: federalism, plurilingualism,
