Austria – SA trade to exceed EUR 1billion

28 October 2019

Dr. Johann Brieger, Ambassador of the Republic of Austria to South Africa and Mrs. Roswitha Brieger hosted a reception to celebrate the Austrian National Day in Pretoria, South Africa. They are pictured cutting the celebratory cake.

Austria has many achievements to celebrate including Vienna being ranked the most liveable city in the world for the 10th year in a row and Salzburg, Austria, being named Lonely Planet's top city to visit in 2020.

Tourism between Austria and South Africa is growing and flights to Austria from Cape Town were recently resumed.

Dr Brieger said that trade between the two countries will exceed EUR 1 billion this year.

South Africa is Austria’s most important trading partner in Africa. The ongoing increase in trade and the development of commercial ties between Austria and South Africa in key areas - such as the automotive sector, the development of infrastructure, renewable energy and tourism - are steadily on the increase.

Relations between South Africa and Austria date back to 1852 when Austria opened a Consulate in Cape Town. Imports and exports between South Africa and Austria are on a healthy footing but there are many opportunities to increase bilateral trade as well as investment.
