Market insight Austria

As a small and open economy Austria has benefited from its business expansion into the CEE region. Austrian companies are not only significant exporters to CEE. They are also large direct investors in the region’s economies. That is why investments in Austrian companies are often considered as a vehicle for investments in the CEE region.
