    The economic and social situation in Austria

    The following study gives an overview of the current economic and social situation in Austria, with a particular focus on explaining the Austrian labour relations model and the importance of social partnership and its role in developments since the onset of the global economic crisis in 2008-2009.

    Austria is an interesting case study in the context of the continuing difficulties the EU faces and the wide disparities between Member States in terms of recent trends and current situation. The main socio-economic indicators presented show Austria's position to be broadly satisfactory, especially compared with the rest of the euro area. Some years after the peak of the financial and economic crisis, Austria's GDP per capita is very high, employment is high and unemployment relatively low. Austria's positive economic ranking is partly due to its strong situation before the crisis and partly to subsequent trends. Over the longer term, Austria has benefited from above-average growth, which can be attributed in part to its efficient institutions and ability to adapt to changing conditions and in part to the positive impact of EU eastern enlargement and the country's geographical location in a strong and dynamic economic region.

  • Speech Item 15 Mar 2013 Organisation: EESC, Speaker: Staffan Nilsson
    Staffan Nilsson`s remarks at the conference on Immigration – a source of wealth and duties for Europe Europe is facing an unprecedented crisis with heavy economic and social consequences. With them has come a tendency for people to retreat into the shelter of familiar identities, a rise in extremism, nationalism and the development of xenophobic, or racist, speech. Respect for fundamental rights, which is the foundation stone of the European model and construction, must be forcefully demanded and Europe must remain an exemplary continent, particularly in these times.
