Reaffirmed granting of the Status of an International Non-Governmental organization (INGO) to Vienna Economic Forum by the legal authorities

Vienna Economic Forum (VEF) is highly pleased and honoured to announce that it has been re-listed in the new decree on granting the Legal Status of an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO), coming into force on 1 January 2022.

The regulation currently enacted by the Federal Minister for European and International Affairs in agreement with the Federal Minister for Labour and the Federal Minister for Interior continuously confirms the INGO status of VEF, which Vienna Economic Forum was originally granted with the official decision of the Federal Minister for European and International Affairs on 7. January 2011.

The long-standing state recognition of Vienna Economic Forum as INGO stands as witness to the numerous VEF successes in supporting cross-border interaction between economy and politics, which are based on strict adherence to the principle of neutrality and the gradually created international basis of trust.

For Vienna Economic Forum it is an honour to be able to further strengthen Austria as a business destination through its activities, and to continuously contribute to the economic cooperation and development of all VEF member countries as an economic region that is constantly growing closer together.
