The Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs strives at all times to promote Austria's foreign trade. The Austrian diplomatic missions and the foreign trade centres of the Austrian Economic Chamber support export promotion. At home, the Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs often takes on the role of coordinator and is involved in cooperation with both the Economic Chamber and the Federation of Austrian Industry.
The Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs and the Austrian diplomatic missions support projects of Austrian companies and contribute their share to promoting Austria as a place of business and support activities for Austria as a tourist destination.
Due to the increasing importance of markets outside the EU, Austria has launched an internationalisation initiative ("go international") with the aim of promoting Austrian exports to markets of the future (e.g. exports to Asia and Latin America).
