Austria’s SMEs rank among the best in Europe

Minister of Economy Mitterlehner © Glaser

The Austrian SME sector has been one of the most adaptive. Value creation increased by an average rate of 3% annually in the period 2010 to 2015, or a total of 16%. Employment climbed by 7%, creating more than 122,000 jobs.   

In four categories, Austria performs better than the EU average, i.e. with respect to internationalization, sustainability, environment and energy, further education and innovation and its positioning in the domestic market. The new SME investment growth premium amounting to EUR 175 million in 2017 and 2018 should provide important impetus for further improvement.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
