Labor productivity: Austria in the top ranks

According to the EU Commission, Austria ranks among the top performers in the EU in terms of labor productivity per employee. With a value of 116,8 % 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 189,2 % of the gross value added, whereas the comparable figure for Bulgaria is only close to 46,7%.

Austria ranks among the most prosperous countries in the EU. It not only offers a market boasting extensive purchasing power, but a corresponding consumer infrastructure. Despite its relatively small size and number of inhabitants, Austria is a profitable market for international companies.

According to Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities, Austria’s economic output is 27% higher than the EU average. It is ranked fourth in the EU with respect to its per capita gross domestic product (GDP), surpassed only by Luxembourg, Ireland and the Netherlands.

The Automobile Industry in Transition: Designed in Austria, Produced in China

Not a day goes by without reports being published on things happening in the automobile industry - positive as well as negative. The unfavourable stories usually focus on the issues of greenhouse gas emissions and the lack of environmental compatibility. The positive coverage mainly deals with activities and announcements about electric cars. The level of attention should not be surprising. The bottom line is that most of us use our own vehicles on a daily basis, and the global market is huge, consisting of 80 million new automobiles.
