“The US is an extremely important market for our economy and the most important export market overseas.”

The United States is Liechtenstein's largest overseas trading partner, offering an export market worth over half a billion dollars annually. Exports include dental implants, precision instruments, and electronics, and Liechtenstein companies play a key role in the supply chain for a wide variety of US sectors, including construction, automotive, dentistry, and digital technology. “The US is an extremely important market for our economy and the most important export market overseas,” said Deputy Prime Minister Sabine Monauni. “It's a huge market, and many of our companies are active there.” Underscoring the scope of this economic relationship, nine Liechtenstein companies provide roughly 4,500 jobs in the US, significant for a nation of just 39,000.
