“Liechtenstein has achieved a great deal in recent years,” Prime Minister Adrian Hasler said on the new government programme. “We now want to make a significant contribution toward the further development of the state and society, the quality of life of the people, the guarantee of internal security, and a strong, self-confident Liechtenstein.”
The government programme provides for various measures in the areas of state, society, economy and living environment. In the public sector, digital services and customer-oriented administration are to be strengthened. Internally, there will be a focus on “careful administration of state finances”. Efficiency in the judicial system should also be improved.
In the area of society, adapting the healthcare system to demographic challenges is top on the agenda, and improvements are planned for achieving a better work-life balance.
In the economy, the government is seeking comprehensive, non-discriminatory market access and will expand the network of double taxation agreements.
“Research and innovation are central concerns” with respect to expanding Liechtenstein as a business location and workplace, said Deputy Prime Minister Daniel Risch, adding that the digital agenda has “high priority in the government programme in the coming four years”.
