The discussion mainly focussed on the close and productive cooperation with the Principality. Among numerous activities, Liechtenstein will graciously be hosting the next meeting of the Permanent Committee taking place in June under the Austrian Presidency and actively supported the Reading Mountain festival, most recently through the organisation of an Alpine poetry slam.

During their visit, the Secretary General and the Deputy Secretary General, Ms Elmi also visited the offices of CIPRA International which has its seat in Liechtenstein.
