Liechtenstein New Year's Interviews

Hereditary Prince Alois has given the traditional new year's interview to Liechtenstein's newspaper Volksblatt (and presumably also to Vaterland) while his father Fürst Hans-Adam II spoke to the country's only radio station, Radio Liechtenstein. In his interview, which is available online under the previous link, the Prince Hans-Adam expressed his confidence in the new year, "We never did as well before, both domestically and internationally." According to the Fürst, the Principality's sovereignity is protected by being a member of international organisations, the people are well educated and innovative, new companies that are internationally competitive are founded each year - so it is only right to be optimistic about the country's future.

The interview with Hereditary Prince Alois isn't available online in its entirety. He spoke about the country's 300th anniversary next year, the challenges faced by the government and what he thinks about a possible deepening of the Rhine river, a Muslim burial ground in the country and the women's quota.
