Until the end of World War I, Austria had been the centre of a vast empire, which controlled much of central Europe for centuries. Austria is now a federal republic, consisting of nine states. Vienna hosts a number of international organizations, including the Secretariat of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Austria has a mixed industrial and agricultural economy, while tourism is also an important source of income. The export-led recovery strengthened in 2010. However, the projected pick-up in private sector consumption and investment demand will be tempered by fiscal consolidation, leaving growth at around 2% in both 2011 and 2012. The unemployment rate will fall slightly, while core inflation picks up somewhat.
