Bilateral relations have been very limited in the past but enjoyed a boost when Minister of Foreign Affairs Hon Murray McCully visited Liechtenstein in April 2013. Later that year, New Zealand and Liechtenstein formally established diplomatic relations, with the New Zealand Ambassador in Berlin now cross-accredited to Liechtenstein.
While trade and economic relations are limited, there are two companies with headquarters in Liechtenstein that operate in New Zealand: Hilti, which deals in power tools and construction equipment, and Ivoclar Vivadent, which is a dental products and supplies company based in Rosedale, North Harbour.
