Importing from Austria

Austria has a population of 8 million and a high standard of living; it ranks as one of the eleven richest countries in the world in terms of GDP per capita. The main trading partner is Germany, but since Austria became a member of the European Union, it has developed closer links to other European Union economies. This has been coupled with foreign investment, as Austria has the ability to access the single European market and a close proximity to the growing economies of the European Union. This has all lead to an increasing rate of GDP growth.

The main imports are cars ($8.8B), refined petroleum (around $6B), crude petroleum (around $6.5B), vehicle parts (around $4.5B) and Petroleum Gas (around $4B).
