Every year, several thousand people from other municipalities around Geneva, other parts of Switzerland or abroad set up home in the City of Geneva. To welcome them to the city, the Executive Council invites them to an official reception, which will be held this year on Saturday 23 September. The event will be attended by Mr Alfonso Gomez, Mayor of Geneva.
