Upper Austria’s global standing
International relations are people-driven and must go beyond the institutional level. This is particularly evident in the international OÖ network. Our members represent cosmopolitan Upper Austria and are valuable ambassadors for our country – our traditions and values in the world,” confirmed Governor Thomas Stilzer at the Summer Festival at Linz Castle.
With nearly 900 members in more than 100 countries, Upper Austria enjoys good relations at the international level. The spectrum ranges from development aid to sports, and from business to culture and science. Founded in 2007, the “Upper Austria International – Upper Austrians Abroad” network has welcomed over 100 newcomers to the network since last summer’s festival in 2019. Those who live abroad often feel very close to home. “We keep in good contact with our compatriots abroad via the Upper Austria international network. Because our international network is a major success factor in the globalized world,” says Stelzer.
For a special home holiday, there was a visit to the “Nature” exhibition at the Linz Castle Museum as a prior program for guests.
