Japanese and Chinese), the website offers a unique insight into Swiss
politics, business, society, travel, culture, science, technology,
sport and weather.
The swissinfo website also offers a special section for the Swiss

(http://freemail.swissinfo.org) has also been updated and by the end
of the year, a personalised news-on-demand feature will be made
available, allowing Internet users to have swissinfo news sent
directly to their e-mail inbox.
