Herzlich Willkommen!

Ambassador Georg Sparber

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Liechtenstein in Washington, DC! Here you will find information about Liechtenstein’s government, economy, history, culture and its relationship with the United States.

Liechtenstein is a small country in the heart of Europe that has existed for over 300 years without war or forced changes to its border. Without military or defense agreements Liechtenstein’s sovereignty relies on upholding and promoting the rule of law at home, in its relations to other countries and in international organizations.

The Embassy of Liechtenstein was established in October of 2002. Since then, we built a dynamic partnership and a broad dialogue with the US in Washington and throughout all 50 states ranging from political and economic issues to cultural and academic.

The United States is a key economic partner of Liechtenstein both in terms of trade and investment. A number of Liechtenstein companies have US operations, producing goods vital to US supply chains and providing over 6000 jobs - equivalent to over 15% of Liechtenstein's population. In addition, Liechtenstein and the United States closely cooperate to fight financial crime, terrorist financing, money-laundering and tax fraud.

Liechtenstein and the United States share a vision of the world based on democracy, human rights and individual freedom. Our countries have a long history in joining forces against threats to this vision. I look forward to developing our partnership further and to working together for a sustainable future for our people and planet.

I invite you to discover more about Liechtenstein and its presence in the US, Europe and around the world.
