AltoPartners Austria hosted an interesting panel discussion at Looshaus, located in the heart of Vienna. Dr. Daniel Thorniley, one of THE economic experts for Central Europe, led the discussion.

As former Senior Vice President of Economist Intelligence, Daniel Thorniley has been observing Central European markets for more than 25 years. At our event, he explained why Central Europe is still one of the best regions in terms of economic growth, profit and competitiveness. To obtain the current economic report of our key speaker Dr. Daniel Thorniley on Emerging Markets in Central Europe, Daniel can be contacted directly.

Joining Daniel Thorniley on the panel were Dr. Maria-Theresia Niss, Member of the Management Board of the Austrian manufacturing group Mitterbauer Beteiligungs-AG and member of the Austrian National Council, and Wolfgang Niessner, CEO of Gebrueder Weiss Holding AG, the internationally leading Austrian logistics group. Both emphasized that the EU eastward enlargement was a great opportunity for many Austrian companies and a start in the direction of internationalization. However, due to the ongoing globalization the future markets for many Austrian companies not only lie in Europe, but in Southeast Asia and the USA. The task of Austrian industrial players is now to set up the framework conditions so that Austria can play a significant role in these markets.

After the panel discussion, our guests had the opportunity to discuss the challenges Austrian companies will be facing and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere of the traditional Looshaus.
