AUSTRIA
(MANUFACTURING) INDUSTRY
INDUSTRIE

Activities directed at the production of goods. The term has a more specific meaning than that of the English word “industry” (which can often simply denote one particular economic activity or group of allied activities without necessarily implying industry in the manufacturing sense), and includes mining and construction. Austrian law makes a traditional distinction in goods production between Industrie and Gewerbe (small-scale craft production).
