Austrian president calls for greater symmetry in mutual trade and financial relations

The Austrian president, Alexander Van der Bellen, says his country is very keen to see symmetry in trade and financial relations between it and the Czech Republic. Mr. Van der Bellen made the comment after talks in Prague with his Czech counterpart, Miloš Zeman. He pointed out that the Czechs export more to Austria than they import from the country and that the situation was the other way around with regard to direct investment. Mr. Van der Bellen also said that transport infrastructure between the two states had got better but there was still room for more improvement.
