Historically, Indo-Austrian ties have been strong.

India’s bilateral trade with Austria is continuing a positive trend and has grown at much more speed than Austria’s overall foreign trade in both imports and exports.

Austria’s imports from India grew from USD 575 Mn in 2017 to USD 712 Mn in 2019.

Key Export Commodities from India includes Apparels, Textile, Footwear, Rubber articles, Vehicles & Railways parts, Electrical machinery and Mechanical appliances.

India’s Import from Austria includes Machinery, Mechanical appliances, Railway parts, Iron and Steel etc.

India’s Export to Austria makes up just 0.37% of the total imports done by Austria from World, suggesting that there lies an largely untapped market for Indian goods that that has a high potential.

The key objective of the Video Conference is to:

  • Understand the present economic status of Austria in view of Covid-19
  • Explore various business opportunities for Indian exporters in the prevailing economic environment and find comprehensive information about the Austrian market.
  • Roadmap and strategies to be followed to enhance India's trade and economic ties with Austria.

Senior officials from the Ministry of Commerce of India, Govt. of India & Senior representatives of prominent Austrian companies/Trade bodies are also being invited to share their experiences and join us in the session.
