New Ideas for Investments

‚Thinking AUT Loud – New Ideas for Investments‘ is an initiative of the Austrian Federal Government, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, the Vienna Stock Exchange and the Erste Group to promote the Austrian financial market internationally.

The event in New York was titled ‚Austria – The Sound of Finance‘, because Austria is more than just ‘The Sound of Music‘. Over the past few decades, the country has evolved to become a stable and growing financial centre.

As an investment location, in addition to its stability-oriented policies, Austria offers a high degree of integration within the European Union, as well as global institutions such as the World Bank and the United Nations.

Growth, innovation and full employment are the key objectives of Austrian economic policy. Stable framework conditions, truly effective tax incentives and a positive investment climate mean that, despite its size, Austria is able to hold its own as a competitive partner on the international stage.

We do our utmost to provide both national and international companies with the best-possible environment for their investments. This is what we hope to consider openly with you here today, so that at the end of the day, you will be convinced that Austria is a good place to invest.
