The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small European country in the heart of Europe whose economy has continuously grown over the years. Its membership in the European Economic Area (EEA), on the one hand, and its close links to Switzerland, on the other hand, have paved the way for extensive activities of foreign investors in the industrial, business, and finance sector. Today Liechtenstein can provide special qualities as an economic base, mainly because of the great political stability, the excellent infrastructure and efficient administration, and the modern and liberal legislation.

As a matter of fact, Liechtenstein has succeeded in acquiring an excellent reputation for its high-tech industry including leading-edge technology companies like Hilti and Ivoclar, and its robust and well-functioning financial centre, the standards of which, as the International Monetary Fund confirms, meet the latest and highest level of compliance and proper business conduct.
