Deloitte's survey titled „Wirtschaftsstandort Österreich im Krisenmodus" (Business Location Austria in crisis mode, available only in German) shows how national top-managers rate Austria's measures during the Corona pandemic.
Especially within factors such as quality of life, infrastructure and state and companies Austria was able to impress with its well targeted and thought out measures. 96% of executives asked rated the health care system with "Very Good" or "Good" and 94% gave top marks for individual safety. The sector infrastructure convinced with a highly developed road and train network, the affordable power supply and telecommunication networks. Next to these sectors, the Austrian transport industry and the real estate infrastructure were mainly rated "Very Good" and "Good. State and companies impress with a strong macro-economic environment and a well-functioning rule of law.
The Covid-19 crisis comes accompanied with obvious challenges, but also major opportunities. Most of the surveyed top executives remain optimistic about Austria and its hopefully soon-to-be way out of the crisis.
