At the end of July, the international rating agency Standard & Poor’s confirmed Liechtenstein’s country rating at AAA with stable outlook, the highest possible rating.
The rating agency states that the positive development of the national financial accounts and the strong position of the public finances are key factors contributing to the retention of the top rating. The robust Liechtenstein economy, good growth prospects and its broad diversification when compared to other small countries have again resulted in Liechtenstein being awarded this pleasing assessment. The active implementation of international regulatory requirements focusing on the financial centre is also highlighted once more as a positive feature.
The rating confirms Liechtenstein’s attractiveness as a secure and stable business location.
