On the 22nd, Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie welcomed Peter Maurer, who is the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), to stay for a courtesy visit. Maurer was on his way to attend World Economic Forum (WEF) events in Davos.

Liechtenstein partners extensively with the ICRC on International Humanitarian Cooperation and Development, with the goals of improving international humanitarian law and providing humanitarian aid. On the matter of the cooperation, Maurer noted: "Liechtenstein is an important and, above all, reliable partner, with its strong support we are able to help people in areas suffering from the effects of protracted conflicts that are not featured in the headlines on a daily basis."
