ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA wins international award

4. January 2017

The Austrian Economic Chambers’ trade promotion arm has been awarded a silver medal at the Trade Promotion Organization (TPO Network) World Conference.

The silver medal presented to ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA is a resounding endorsement of the organisation’s impressive projects and achievements, and the Austrian Economic Chambers’ foreign trade organisation was declared the second best trade promotion organisation in the Developed Country category at the award ceremony in Marrakesh, Morocco.

The prestigious accolade was awarded by the Geneva-based International Trade Centre (ITC), a body run jointly by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations (UN). The award once again recognises the excellent support ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA provides to Austrian companies launching and expanding their businesses abroad, and underlines the important contribution the organisation makes to the country’s exports. For ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA, the award also serves as encouragement to continue the work that won the ITC’s praise.

The ITC presents its awards every two years, and ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA was named ‘Best Trade Promotion Organization’ in 2012. In 2016, the gold medal went to Business France, and France will host the next TPO World Conference in 2018.
