Introduction

Once the center of power for the large Austro-Hungarian Empire, Austria was reduced to a small republic after its defeat in World War I. Following annexation by Nazi Germany in 1938 and subsequent occupation by the victorious Allies in 1945, Austria's status remained unclear for a decade. A State Treaty signed in 1955 ended the occupation, recognized Austria's independence, and forbade unification with Germany. A constitutional law that same year declared the country's "perpetual neutrality" as a condition for Soviet military withdrawal. The Soviet Union's collapse in 1991 and Austria's entry into the EU in 1995 have altered the meaning of this neutrality. A prosperous, democratic country, Austria entered the EU Economic and Monetary Union in 1999.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Economic activity is set to remain buoyant through 2018 and, to a lesser extent, 2019, boosted by strong rebounds in investment and exports. Solid job creation and dynamic wages underpin private consumption. Inflation remains higher than in other euro area countries, mainly driven by prices in sectors that are little exposed to international merchandise trade.

The public deficit is declining albeit less than strong growth would imply. An improvement of public spending efficiency would free up funds for the extension of full-day schooling and childcare in rural areas, the upgrading of digital infrastructure and investments in life-long learning programmes. A more equity-capital-friendly business environment and further improvements in digital infrastructure would benefit both businesses and households.
