Schneider-Ammann Says He’d Like Franc at 1.35, 1.40

(Corrects to say franc should weaken in first paragraph.)

March 26 (Bloomberg) -- Swiss Economy Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann said he would “generally like” the franc to weaken toward 1.35 or 1.40 versus the euro, according to an interview with Swiss television.

“It would be fatal if the minimum exchange rate was suddenly removed,” Schneider-Ammann said, according to comments posted on Swiss television’s website today. He referred to the Swiss central bank’s franc cap of 1.20 versus the euro. Asked whether the ceiling should be raised, he said while the central bank is “independent,” the purchasing power parity “is higher” than 1.20.
