Highlights

U.S. Relationship

U.S.-Liechtenstein Relations

The United States established diplomatic relations with Liechtenstein in 1997. The good relations between the two countries are based on close commercial interactions and common support for democracy, human rights, and free markets. The United States and Liechtenstein have signed a mutual legal assistance treaty, focused largely on jointly combating money laundering and other illegal banking activities, a tax information exchange agreement, and an agreement to implement the provisions of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The United States does not have an embassy in Liechtenstein, but the U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland is also accredited to Liechtenstein.

Bilateral Economic Relations

Liechtenstein and Switzerland represent one mutual economic area with open borders between the two countries. European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries, which include Liechtenstein and Switzerland, are significant markets for U.S. exporters and investors.
