From 1921 to 2021, the volume of bilateral economic cooperation between Russia and Austria has increased significantly.

The Commercial Representation of Russia (formerly USSR) in Austria, also known as the "Commercial Section of the Embassy", has contributed a lot to the growth of economic volume, such as in the implementation of joint investment projects in both countries (Kronospan, Egger, Backaldrin - in Russia, Sberbank, Lukoil, Metafrax - in Austria).
