At a level of 117.7, productivity in Austria is considerably higher than the EU average. Accordingly, Austria outperforms large industrial nations such as Germany, France and Italy.

Labour productivity per hour rose by close to 25 percent in the period 2000 to 2019, whereas it only climbed by less than 20 percent in Germany and stagnated in Italy.

The curfews once again made the decision-making bodies of Austrian companies and all consultants aware how indispensable the digitalisation of corporate law and the implementation of already ex-isting possibilities and guidelines actually are. Austrian corporate law should also be subject to a process of digital renewal in an age of new technologies and artificial intelligence.
