On behalf of the United States, I would like to congratulate the Austrian people on the occasion of your National Day.
Austria has long played a vital role in international efforts to build a more peaceful, democratic and prosperous future for Europe and the rest of the world. The United States is proud to be your partner in these efforts.
Our economic relations are robust, and the United States is Austria’s largest export market outside the EU. Our scientific, cultural and people-to-people ties are equally vibrant. I wish all Austrians a happy National Day and look forward to further strengthening the friendship and cooperation between our nations.
