Austria: Country and Foreign Investment
Austria is an industrialised and very developed nation with a large service sector. Most people, especially the younger generation, speak English.
Austria has always had close links to eastern European countries and has benefited from these links since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Many businesses have relocated from Eastern Europe to Austria in the past number of years.
Among the major Austrian companies are the Red Bull drinks label and Swarovski crystal.
Worldwide, Austria has the highest number of graduates from secondary education; the workforce is regarded as reliable and highly motivated. Industrial action is almost non-existent.
