May 21st – 22nd, Consul General Georg Heindl and the Austrian Trade Commissioner in New York, Michael Friedl, visited Philadelphia, the largest city of the State of Pennsylvania and, together with the Austrian Honorary Consul, Mr. Gregory Montanaro, were received by Mayor Michael Nutter.

Almost 40 Austrian companies have subsidiaries in Pennsylvania, which makes the state one of the most important locations for Austrian business in the US.
At a reception for the Austrian guests, Consul General Georg Heindl stated: “Philadelphia, the city of Independence Hall and Liberty Bell, site of the signing both of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution, has a special place in the US, standing for Democracy, Human Rights and the Rule of Law in a special, historic way. These are values common to Austria and the US.”
Discussion Evening with Students and Young Professionals and the Consul General
On May 7th, Consul General Georg Heindl invited young Austrians studying and working in New York to a discussion evening on the theme: Austrian-American relations 70 years after World War II. Consul General Heindl gave an overview of the relations Austria-USA, on the governmental, and also on the societal level. He mentioned the importance of the Marshal Plan and the scholarship and exchange programs, which enabled, and continue to enable many young Austrians to travel to the US and greatly broaden their horizon.
Heindl put questions to the participants: What do you like about the US, what motivated you to come here to study or work? How should the relations Austria-US be shaped in the future? This led to a lively discussion, in which the participants gave insights into their specific experiences of studying and working in the US, and drew comparisons with Austria.
