At SUISA’s general meeting, composers, lyricists and music publishers adopted and signed off on a resolution to strengthen the public service. In the resolution, SUISA members ask the Swiss Parliament to take into account the key role of reception fee-financed TV and radio broadcasters. For music professionals in particular, the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG SSR) represents a vital platform thanks to its high proportion of Swiss music. SRG SSR broadcasters help people discover Swiss music and bring it to the attention of a wide audience.
