European Union Immigration: Austria
Austria is a country covered in mountains, largely because of its location at the eastern end of the Alps. These mountains cover most of the western and southern parts of Austria. The eastern provinces however are in the Danube Basin, much lower than the mountains. Wholesale, retail trade transport, accommodation and food services (22.3 %), industry (21.8%) and public administration, defence, education, human health and social work activities (17.7 %), is the most important sectors of Austria’s economy (2012). Austria has partnered with Germany, Italy and the US for export and Germany, Italy and Switzerland for import.
