Federal Division of Transport and Communication of the Austrian Economic Chamber issues warning against area-covering truck toll
In the constituent meeting on 17 June Mag. Alexander Klacska was elected again as Chairman of the Federal Division of Transport and Communication within the Austrian Economic Chamber (WKO).
Ing. Mag. Elisabeth Rothmüller-Jannach (Caritnhia) and KommRat MBA Johannes Hödlmayr (Upper Austria) will continue to hold the functions of his Deputy Chairpersons in the Economic Chamber for the 2015 to 2020 term of office.
Dr. Christoph Leitl, President of the Economic Chamber outlined the particular challenges of the industry. According to him, the tax reform must be negotiated once again. An attractive economic location requires a transport sector that is competitive on an international scale. However, an area-covering toll for trucks was very contrary to this objective, Alexander Klacska said alarmingly.
