The world is currently facing tremendous changes. A solid economic base is the foundation for social wellbeing and a positive outlook to the future. Austria has experienced a long period of economic success since the fall of the Iron Curtain, however, competition particularly from low cost countries has also grown significantly. The challenges lie ahead.

Prof. Arturo Bris, director of the renowned World Competitiveness Center and Austria’s State Secretary Dr. Harald Mahrer will present their views and then discuss opportunities for a strong economy in Austria and Central Europe.
