Like many of its European neighbours, Austria was hit hard by the downturn in global spending. But in many respects, the recession was only the start of Austria's problems. In 2002, Austria was hit by a series of devastating floods, causing an estimated £ 1.7 billion of damage. Austria is now keen to attract more foreign investment into the country. The government is aiming to expand the workforce's technology skills, and is sponsoring a number of training and education bodies. Austria is on a par with countries such as Germany in its use of technology.
