Of course, tourism also plays a paramount role. The service sector also makes a major contribution to the Austrian economy, which is one of the most highly developed in the world.

The Republic of Austria has nine federal states, each with its own state government, and is elected on a democratic parliamentary basis. The capital of the republic is Vienna and the national holiday is celebrated on October 26.

Agriculture: In view of the excellent landscape and climatic conditions, the agricultural industry, which is largely characterized by the cultivation of sugar beets, potatoes, wine and cereals, generates high yields. Particularly high volumes of raw materials can be found in the lignite, iron ore, natural gas, copper and lead segments.

The nationalization of the basic industries in 1946 and the electricity industry in 1947 was intended to create a solid basis for an economic upswing, because private investors were almost non-existent after World War II. Agriculture yields only about 1.3 percent, but it is highly developed.

Exports and wages: Austria's most important export goods are machinery and vehicles as well as manufactured goods. Agricultural products and, above all, organic food from Austria are also in high demand abroad.

Despite the negative effects of the fourth lockdown, the Austrian economy recorded significant GDP growth in 2021.
