Liechtenstein ready to grant reciprocal rights during implementation period

On 9 May 2018, Liechtenstein’s Foreign Minister Aurelia Frick and Secretary of State David Davis met to discuss progress of the UK’s EU negotiations, the impact of Brexit on Liechtenstein, and future relations between the two countries. Liechtenstein and the UK are closely linked as members of the Single Market, through the European Economic Area (EEA). Market access of British goods and services to Liechtenstein and vice versa is currently fully enabled by the EEA. The close partnership between Liechtenstein and the UK is further reinforced through various bilateral agreements and close cooperation in international organisations.

At the March European Council, the UK and the EU agreed that existing international agreements would continue to apply for the duration of the implementation period, from March 2019 until the end of December 2020. This agreement is of central importance for Liechtenstein as well as the other EEA/EFTA States, Iceland and Norway. This agreement ensures stability and certainty in trading relations with the UK until the end of 2020, and has been warmly welcomed by companies in Liechtenstein.

The Liechtenstein Government fully supports continuity and is ready to grant reciprocal rights to the UK during the implementation period.

“Our economies and our people share many interests, “ said Foreign Minister Frick, “and we are committed to continuing our close cooperation with the United Kingdom in the coming years and beyond.”
