The eu-representation office's tasks
Since Austria became a member of the EU in 1995, the EU Representation Office of Carinthia in Brussels has been the interface for the representation of Carinthia's interests in Europe and the region's point of contact to the institutions of the European Union. The EU-Representation Office is continuously working for Carinthia's interests at European level to maintain its strong position in the heart of Europe. Since 2005, the Carinthian EU-Representation Office has been in the same building as the representations of Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) and Istria (Croatia). The "multi-regional house" offers an excellent opportunity to live the European added value day by day. Together, the three regions represent almost 2 million EU citizens.
