We also aim at expanding our activities in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in the course of the next few years and want to increase the share of projects in these countries to 20 % of our portfolio.

At the same time we want to promote Austrian economic interests with our projects and see our activities also as market development for future Austrian economic engagement.
