Despite being one of Europe’s best kept secrets, its reputation as a pro-business economy with efficient legislation is growing. Our goal is to position the country as one of the best destinations to work and grow a successful transnational business; a place where executives can comfortably raise a family and where they will find the perfect life balance.

As the Alpine country celebrates 300 years of historic success, it continues to offer the ideal environment for today’s innovators.

Liechtenstein stands for entrepreneurship and always open for innovation. The latest evidence of its financial health came in June 2019, when Standard & Poor’s reaffirmed that it remains one of only 10 countries worldwide to merit the agency’s highest AAA rating and praised the government’s forward-looking and effective economic policies.

Liechtenstein: Country for Entrepreneurs

“Liechtenstein stands for entrepreneurship, short decision-making channels, stability, legal certainty and openness to innovation,” says Mr. Adrian Hasler, Prime Minister of Liechtenstein.

His government is focused on maintaining an ideal legislative and regulatory framework for businesses. An illustration of this is the speed with which the country’s legislators and regulators in various sectors react to changes in international best practices for doing business.

“Compliance with all the important European and wider international standards is a central factor of attractiveness for Liechtenstein. Our good standing in the world is crucial and this plays a huge role in the competitiveness of our businesses.” Mr. Hasler continues.

“Liechtenstein offers a business-friendly and liberal economic order, as well as moderate taxes, which are supervised by competent and efficient public authorities,” says Adrian Hasler, Prime Minister of the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Liechtenstein – Blockchain Business

“The new blockchain laws will give a flexible legal framework for the crypto industry as a whole. Enabling Tokenization of any asset, issuing of Security Tokens and cryptocurrencies in a regulated legal environment, is a unique chance for Liechtenstein and Europe to stand out,” says Monty C. M. Metzger, CEO & Founder, LCX. 

Digitalization: Tokenized Digital Assets Empowering The Financial Industry

In the Newsweek interview Mr. Monty Metzger, describes why he believes that blockchain is to money what e-mail was to the letter. There is a new technology which is revolutionizing not only finance but industries worldwide called the blockchain. Blockchain is a distributed ledger system which enables a variety of applications in logistics, healthcare, education, but also in finance and banking.
