(ANSA) - UDINE, 21 LUG - "Friuli Venezia Giulia historically has a very close relationship with Austria. To this day, the list of collaborations with Vienna is long. For example, there are projects in the logistics sector involving the port of Trieste and the Villach logistics hub, important Austrian funding in Trieste. Moreover, shared economic and tourist routes within the 'Euroregio Senza Confini,' the European group of territorial cooperation co-founded by Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Carinthia, and many other initiatives. As a regional administration, we are working to enhance this relationship, which continues to be privileged." That is what Friuli Venezia Giulia Governor Massimiliano Fedriga said after meeting this morning in the Region's headquarters with the President of the Austrian National Council Wolfgang Sobotka, accompanied by the Consul General of Austria in Milan Clemens Mantl, the Honorary Consul of Austria in Trieste Sabrina Strolego and Italy's Ambassador in Vienna Stefano Beltrame.

"Given its special position in the European context, our Region aims to strengthen logistical links in partnership with neighboring countries. In addition - Fedriga explained - we are pushing on the research asset, given the presence in Fvg of numerous scientific realities of international scope." (ANSA).
