Austria - OECD economic survey 2017 - August 31, 2017

The OECD published the results of its survey with thematic chapters on digitalisation and on the inclusive labour market. Employment has expanded, driven by rising participation of women and elderly and by immigration, although hours worked per worker have declined. Nonetheless, like in most OECD countries, productivity has slowed. The country’s transition to a digital economy and society is progressing but is slower than in the most advanced economies. A whole-of-government approach should help embrace change and facilitate the flourishing of innovative businesses, work practices and lifestyles.
