On behalf of the Government of the United States and the American people, I congratulate the people of the Principality of Liechtenstein as you commemorate your National Day on August 15.

For more than 300 years, Liechtensteiners have worked together to build the proud and prosperous nation we see today.  The United States is pleased to be one of Liechtenstein’s most important trading partners and largest export markets.   We also greatly value our partnership in combating financial crimes and human trafficking.

I wish the people of Liechtenstein a happy National Day and look forward to an even stronger friendship in the months and years ahead.
