Busy in Liechtenstein

Together with Liechtenstein's minister for justice, foreign and cultural affairs Aurelia Frick and Klaus-Dieter Lehmann, president of the Goethe-Institut, Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein, in his capacity as president of the Prince Franz Josef of Liechtenstein foundation, signed an agreement about future cooperation between the principality and the non-profit association.

The Goethe-Institut is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institution and operates worldwide. Their aim is to promote studying the German language as well as culture exchange. They also try to foster knowledge about Germany by providing information about its culture, society and politics.
Until now, they also shared information about two of the other three German speaking countries, Austria and Switzerland. In the future this will change as the third one, Liechtenstein, will also be included.

The Prince Franz Josef of Liechtenstein foundation, which is presided by the husband of Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg, will give packages of books about the principality to the more than 100 libraries of the Goethe-Institut worldwide. The contribution will also help to further promote the German language.

More information, pictures and a video that includes a short interview with Prince Nikolaus can be found at Vaterland and Volksblatt.
