Austria – expand to a new business market, seminar, Oulu

Are you considering expanding your activities to the DACH Region or Central and Eastern Europe? If this is the case, the Vienna Region is your place to start.

Austria and the business location Vienna Region are among Europe’s wealthiest regions and feature an above-average performance in research and innovation. The Vienna Region accounts for about half of Austria’s total economic output. The high standard of living, the skilled labor force and Austria’s central geographical location make it an ideal place to conduct business within Western Europe – particularly the German speaking countries – and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
