Enterprises – strong partners of the OSCE Chairmanship

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) offers its 57 participating States and 11 Partners for Co-operation a reliable platform for dialogue where different perspectives, traditions and experiences  can be shared and discussed, in order to better deal with contemporary and future challenges. As a traditional bridge-builder between East and West, Austria in its role as the OSCE Chairmanship in 2017, will foster dialogue and exchange between states, civil society and the business community.  

Highlights of the Chairmanship year include the informal ministerial meeting in July and the OSCE Ministerial Council in December, major political and diplomatic events in Austria that will focus media attention on the OSCE and the host country. The Austrian Chairmanship takes the opportunity to work together with partners from the business community, which are contributing their experience, their products and their knowledge to the organization and logistics of these events free of charge. In turn, they profit from the international and media attention to these high-level meetings. This partnership between the public and private sectors strengthens mutual trust and generates added value for both sides. The Austrian Chairmanship thanks the following companies for their contribution:
