Strengthening Relations Between Liechtenstein and Switzerland

Today, Hereditary Prince Alois received Alain Berset, a member of the Swiss Federal Council and the Interior Minister. Also in attendance to receive Berset were Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, Minister of Foreign Affairs Aurelia Frick, and Minister of Social Affairs Mauro Pedrazzini.

Federal Councillor Berset was also in Liechtenstein to speak at the multi-country Unternehmertag event that is also being held in Voralberg (Austria) and the Rhine Valley region of Switzerland. Before his speaking engagement, he visited the government building with Prime Minister Hasler and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Aurelia Frick to explore cooperative efforts in music education between Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Specifically, the two countries will be focusing on bringing music education into youth programs.

Additionally, Federal Councillor Berset met with Mauro Pedrazzini for a working lunch, during which they discussed, among other things, the upcoming art exhibit Lohnmobil. Federal Councillor Berset will open the exhibit in St. Gallen, and it will be on view in Liechtenstein during August.

No photos of Hereditary Prince Alois, but a photo of Alain Berset and Aurelia Frick, as well as more about the federal councillor's visit, here.
