Austria is among the most stable countries in the world. Inflation rates are low, the increase in national debt has been succesfully reduced and there the target of a balanced budget is within reach. An array of measures have been implemented to stimulate growth through liberalisation and privatisation and to secure the future through social system reforms.
Austria has been a member of the European Union since 1995 and is fully integrated into the common market. GDP (Gross Domestic Product) per capita is at EUR 35,710 (2011 nominal), putting Austria under the top ten within the EU as well as world-wide.
For 2012 a 0.9% increase of Austria's GDP is predicted.
