Abstract

The paper examines the question of the emergence of multinational firms from Eastern Europe in Austria on different levels of aggregation: The first part uses aggregated data on inward foreign direct investment (FDI) in Austria from Central- and East European Countries (CEECs). These data show the importance of outward FDI from CEECs directed to Austria. The second part analyses survey data on the basis of a mailing survey sent to 210 firms from CEECs registered in Austria. Although the response rate was low, an interesting picture emerges of outward FDI directed to Austria. Overall, Austria is an important host country for outward foreign direct investment from Central- and East European Countries, yet not a bridgehead to other Western markets. (authors' abstract)
