Austria and International Financial Institutions

International financial institutions operate in an area where development policy goals mix with Austrian economic interests. The international strategy of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance is particularly concerned with the formulation of economic objectives. Pursuing interests of this nature does not conflict with the poverty reduction and development goals of Austrian representatives on the boards of directors of these international financial institutions.

Strategic guidelines for IFIs

The Ministry of Finance is responsible for representing Austria at multi-lateral development banks and effectively pursues Austria's development and economic policy interests there. The strategic course to be followed is currently under review and will be published here in the near future.
