The Austrian capital in Yugoslavia is interesting from two standpoints: as capital invested in the existing industry and as capital invested anew in the period 1919-1938. Most of the foreign capital in Yugoslavia was French and British and only a small part of it Austrian, Czech and Hungarian. The Austrian capital and its leading structures thus had no negative effects on the development of industry in Yugoslavia, as far as its organization and technical production are concerned.
