Austria in the EU - the advantages

As a result, the fundamental freedoms enjoyed by people in the EU also extend to Austrians. This entails the freedom of movement for all workers and thus the free choice of employment, right of establishment and freedom to provide services, and the free movement of capital and goods. In return, Austria is obliged to adopt EU regulations.

Ongoing EU enlargement has had a positive impact on Austria’s economic growth. Forecasts conclude that Austria’s annual GDP increase is 0.15% higher than it would have been only with an EU of 15 member states (EU-15).

The bottom line is that per capita economic growth, employment and GDP of the Alpine Republic is above the average of the countries in the eurozone.

Index of Globalization: Austria at the top

Austria has been awarded an impressive fourth place in the current Index of Globalization announced by KOF, the Swiss Economic Institute at the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) Zurich, making it one of the most strongly globalized countries in the world.

 

In addition, due to its central location, Austria is number one when it comes to establishing business relationships with Eastern and South Eastern Europe.
