Liberland Set to Become New Hong Kong: Prosperous and Wealthy

Liberland, Europe’s tiniest, newest country, has no intention of joining the EU, NATO or any other political or military alliances, but eyes joining some free trade zone as a full-fledged member of the international community, Vít Jedlicka, the President of the state, shared his thoughts on the country’s future with Radio Sputnik.

The president envisages his country as something like Hong Kong; he thinks he and his team are able to turn a piece of rock into something miraculous in about 20-40 years: a place of prosperity and great wealth.

“No way we will join the EU or NATO, it would not allow us to have our own taxes and law regulation because the EU sets minimum standards for taxes and they are pretty high at the moment,” he added.

“With regards to NATO, we are not considering it at all, as our dream is to be a neutral country, just like Switzerland or Austria,” Jedlicka said.
However, the head of state is very keen to apply to the European Free Trade agreement, which he finds a much better solution. That will give the state totally open borders to goods from everywhere in the world.
