Labor productivity: Austria in the top ranks

With a value of 116.6 % of the gross value added per person employed, the Austrian economy has once again demonstrated its high level of competitiveness, surpassing industrial powerhouses such as France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain.

There are major differences among the individual EU member states. Average labor productivity in Ireland’s manufacturing sector reaches a level of 194.5 % of the gross value added, whereas the comparable figure for Bulgaria is only close to 46.7%.
