From the creamy raclette to gruyère cheeses, Switzerland is set to sign an agreement with the EU to protect the geographical origins of about 20 Swiss products. 


Switzerland’s Economics Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann is meeting EU commissioner Dacian Ciolos on Tuesday to sign the agreement, said the Federal Department of Economic Affairs.

Schneider-Ammann and Ciolos are also scheduled to discuss Swiss-EU agricultural policy, the department said.
