Business in Liechtenstein

As a business location, Liechtenstein has much to offer. Known is the stable and innovative financial centre. However, the large, well-diversified industrial sector is still to be discovered. Both sectors benefit from the numerous advantages that Liechtenstein as a business location offers. Two markets (EEA and Switzerland), stability, a simple, contemporary tax system and an environment in which entrepreneurship is worth it: All this contributes to the success of a company in Liechtenstein. The new brochure “Business in Liechtenstein” offers more information about the various location advantages of the country.
