Investing in Austria

Hidden Champions

Japan and Austria have continuously strengthened their ties for more than 150 years. Numerous Japanese firms have settled down and set up a business hub in Austria to leverage the strategic location between the Western and Eastern European market by breaking into the vast consumer market. While the Austrian economy is largely comprised of SMEs, which are also world leaders in their niche markets, the Japanese economy shows a significant number of kabushiki gaishas that are heavily active across the globe. Despite the difference in company size and the geographical distance, both nations show a similar economic success story by being highly innovative and export-orientated. This has been a main driver for constant growth in the bilateral trade that has already exceeded EUR 4 billion.

A thriving business requires a business-friendly environment, including a well-established infrastructure and regulatory framework. The following points show why international corporations invest in Austria by either establishing a new legal entity or by merging with or acquiring an existing one.
