Dear Sir, Madam,
The centenary of the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) presents a wonderful opportunity for the OSA and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs to show the world who our country’s ambassadors are. Indeed, you are the face of Switzerland abroad.
In association with the OSA, next year Presence Switzerland, the unit at the FDFA in charge of promoting Switzerland’s image abroad, will publish a book showcasing 101 Swiss nationals who live or have lived abroad. The aim is to highlight the importance of the Swiss community abroad, its variety and the role its members play in the life of our country and of their countries of adoption.
We need you to help us create this book. If you would like to participate, please refer to this factsheet and reply (in the language of your choice) to four of the six questions. Please also send us four passport photos of yourself, which we will use to illustrate the book.
So that we can progress with this project, we need to know by 31 January 2015 if you would like to participate.
If you require further information, please contact Daniel Menichini, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will join us in making a success of this project!
