Many advantages as a business location, liberal and stable economic policies, a head of state passionate about enterprise, a position in the heart of Europe and to top it all off a stunning natural landscape. That is simply Liechtenstein.
While its area of 160km² makes Liechtenstein one of the smallest countries in the world, when it comes to doing business it is among the big global players. The Principality is home to many international market leaders and industrial companies, an innovative financial centre and a wide range of manufacturing and trade enterprises.
More than 4300 companies in Liechtenstein mean that there is one business for every nine inhabitants in the Principality. Indeed, Liechtenstein has almost as many jobs as citizens - proof, if any was needed, of its economic success. Free enterprise is a way of life in Liechtenstein, not least thanks to the country's liberal economic policies. The state is kept as streamlined as possible, works quickly and is stable. Liechtenstein is one of the few countries in the world with financial reserves instead of public debt.
Liechtenstein has a long tradition of cooperating with parnters. Since 1924 it has formed part of a customs union with Switzerland and used the Swiss franc as the official currency. The Principality is a member of the most important European and international organisations. This makes it easy for entrepreneurs in Liechtenstein to do business, including exporting goods and services.
Liechtenstein offers exceptional people with exceptional ideas a place to be creative. Here, it pays to be an entrepreneur. It is no coincidence that businesses from Liechtenstein are among the global leaders in their respective niche markets. The country offers an attractive corporate environment and strong growth perspectives.
