Representation of interests
One of our main tasks is to represent the industry's interests towards Styria's legislative and administrative organs. Styria's competitiveness as an industrial area and the needs of its businesses are our top priority!
The IV is concerned in particular with ensuring that the interests of the industry are brought to the attention of the public and target audiences. Issues concerning the working environment, environmental protection, cost burden, etc. are communicated by the IV through its intensive media work. Another important aspect of its PR work is presenting individual businesses and their efforts.
In addition, the IV has established strong contacts to regional and national media.
A member must and should expect help from its supporting organization in solving individual problems. Our employees strive to help with all arising problems in an immediate and competent manner. Our services include legal advice, networking, press work and individual supporting, and organizing company events.
The IV informs its members about the newest industry-relevant developments as they occur. We follow a pro-active approach and inform ourselves about new developments before they happen, so that we can adapt them to the needs of our members.
Shaping the future
The IV considers itself a think tank of the industry, responsible for shaping the political and socio-political conditions. We strive to accelerate Styria's development into an internationally competitive market.
Communication and cooperation
Since its founding the IV has considered itself a platform for industry representatives. Especially in today's fast-paced environment, the building of communicative networks on a regional level is of utmost importance.
