Identification of causes for the stagnating development of Liechtenstein’s goods exports

Main Research Area:

Liechtenstein’s exports of goods developed very dynamically for decades, synchronising with international trade in goods and outperforming global GDP. Since the 2008/09 financial crisis, however, there has been a tendency towards stagnation with only weak growth. The research project investigated the causes of this, primarily based on the collection and analysis of a comprehensive data set with national export data (at goods category level) from Liechtenstein and eighteen European countries.

The research project was carried out as part of the «​Focus Topic» module of «Applied Economic Analysis»​​​, the results of which will be published in LI Focus 2/2024.

Project duration: 2023–2024
