Austrian Evening for Lviv Business Community

  • Austrian Evening for  Lviv Business Community
Issue 2, June 2008.

On May 29 the European Business Association held their monthly EuroDrink Party with the theme this time being “Austrian Night”. The venue for the networking event was the elegant House of Scientists, which lent an added air of sophistication to proceedings. During the formal part of the party honorary consul of the Austrian Republic Mr. Yaroslav Nakonechny mentioned the fact that Austrians feel particularly comfortable in today’s Lviv, much as they did 150 years ago during Habsburg rule. Austrian investment makes up more than 10% of all international investment in Lviv, while the city boasts over 170 representative offices of Austrian firms. Interest is so high that officials from the Austrian Embassy are confident that this figure will rise to 200 by the end of the year.
