Austria is a beautiful country with Austria is a beautiful country with lots of nature, very good food and a special mentality of the people. Although this does not always have to be positive, the typical Austrian is an opportunist. Outwardly cosmopolitan, often traditional and intrinsically inward. A saying goes that Austria is a country that loves change as long as everything stays as it is. Due to its geographical location in the heart of Europe, Austria has always played a central role. Even today, as a very small country, Austria is still considered a western bridge to the East.
The Republic of Austria (Austria's official designation) is amongst the richest countries of the world (currently ranked number 12 in terms of GDP), because of its high overall level of development and its geographical location.
Austria's economy is a so-called social market economy with a well-developed industry and strong Labour movements. It heavily benefits from its membership in the European Union and its proximity to Germany (a large, highly developed and economically strong country).
As a popular destination for tourists from all over the globe, Austria creates a fairly large share of its revenue from the tourism and hospitality sector.
Austria's education system and its high academic standard (especially in regard to tertiary education) is another factor for the country's good overall economic situation (as a certain level of quality in education ensures a certain level of quality in professional activity).
In addition to the above-mentioned, it is the country's well developed social system, which ensures support for the portion of the population below a certain level of income and almost free access to schools and hospitals for the general population, which contributes to Austria's wealth.
As a highly developed and effective social system can serve as a kind of safety net for the population, which increases the chance of individuals to re-establish themselves within society after dropping out the of latter (in other words: it is easier for people, who have lost their jobs or who have become homeless to reverse this negative development and to restart).
This helps to battle poverty, to prevent social unrest and to counteract unemployment within the country and ensures a better social and also economic climate.
