Today, the trainees of the Swiss diplomatic and consular service visited Liechtenstein to get an impression of and to learn about the Principality as many of them will represent Liechtenstein diplomaticly in the future. During their visit, they were received at Schloss Vaduz by Hereditary Prince Alois.
As Liechtenstein is a tiny country, they only maintain few diplomatic missions in other countries. The Principality has embassies in Austria, which also serves for the Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, the United States of America as well as a non-resident ambassador to the Holy See. In addition, it has permanent representations in Brussels, Geneva, Strasbourg and New York City to the different major multilateral organisations as well as a bunch of consulates. In all other countries, Liechtenstein is represented by Switzerland who also offer all services to Liechtensteiners that they offer their own citizens.
