Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein Alois advocates the increase in investment of his country in the Ukrainian economy. “We talked about expanding economic cooperation. There are Liechtenstein firms that are already working in Ukraine… We talked about the possibility of developing this cooperation and attracting more Liechtenstein investments to Ukraine,” the prince said in a statement to the press after a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv. He said that in recent years Liechtenstein participated in various projects in Ukraine – both in supporting the reform process and in the humanitarian sphere.
In turn, Poroshenko said that half of the investments that come from Liechtenstein to Ukraine are directed to industry. “This shows the long-term and strategic nature of Liechtenstein investors’ plans for Ukraine,” the head of state said.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will meet with Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein Alois on Wednesday. The prince is on an official visit to Ukraine at the invitation of the head of state. “During the talks, they plan to discuss the intensification of Ukrainian-Liechtenstein political dialogue, Liechtenstein’s support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as the intensification of trade and economic cooperation, taking into account free trade opportunities as part of the European Free Trade Association,” the presidential press service said.
The prince will also visit Lviv. “This visit will be the first visit by a high representative of Liechtenstein since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two states,” the report said.
