The Liechtenstein Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has presented its Vision 2025 for Industrial Liechtenstein. As a foundation of competitiveness, it stands for liberal economic order.
The LCCI revealed in a statement that the industrial location of Liechtenstein comprises companies that can compete with their competitors through innovation, research and development and niche products. However, it is precisely the changing international environment that is driving the economy. According to the LCCIs Vision 2025, support should come from a liberal economic policy with a competitive framework.
The basis for this should be an open, constructive cooperation between industry, politics and social partners. President Klaus Risch commented: "If the actions of all players in Liechtenstein are on the same level, we can expect a successful future for the economic centre."
The integrated value chain is to be maintained. One reason of many: production is shifting away from research and development, which hinders the work of the latter. Research and development within knowledge-based companies is essential for the country, according to the statement. Within the framework of Vision 2025, this area is of even greater importance. As a key link, the LCCI wants to support cooperation between companies as well as with science. Education is a success factor across all levels. Mathematics, computer science, sciences and technology should be promoted, according to the statement, and enthusiasm for technical innovation awakened.
The LCCI wants to raise even greater awareness of the complex activities carried out by international companies and to work for flexible workplace structures, especially with regard to demographic development.
