AUSTRIA
Our Featured Country

Austria is a small European Country with 8.3 millions inhabitants. The country is sometimes seen as an old and non-dynamic economy. That could not be further from the truth!

Austria has been a pioneer in Europe by developing bio products and using green energies; its industries are competitive and well diversified; its banking sector is performing well in spite of the worldwide financial crisis; and the government invests and sustains innovations in high and new technologies. Visit the website Invest in Austria to find key facts, industry sectors description and details on innovative clusters.

Situated in the center of the European Area, Austria represents an advantageous place to be located in Europe. The country can be a good entry point to access the east European markets. Vienna, the capital city, situated in the far east of the country, is very close to Slovakia, Hungary and Czech Republic. The Web portal AdvantageAustria.org from the Austrian Trade Promotion Organisation offers all the information you need to do business with Austria.

And don't forget the website of the U.S. Commercial Service in Austria. The site gives extensive information about the markets and business culture there.

If that's not enough, you'll also find plenty of good research at the Austria Mini Portal (http://fita.org/countries/austria.html), a feature of the FITA Web site. The Austria Mini Portal has an overview of Austria, with facts about the language, currency, climate, etc., plus more specific information about the economy, markets, taxes, labor market indicators, and tips on doing business in Austria.

The Austria Mini Portal is one of many research gateways at the FITA site. To find Mini Portals for other regions or countries, just click on "Country Profiles" from within a Mini Portal, or at the FITA home page ( http://www.fita.org ).
