BEIJING, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- An Austrian survey shows that 78 percent of Viennese believe that the Belt and Road Initiative will have a positive impact on Austria's economic growth, the Beijing-headquartered Economic Daily reported.

The survey was carried out by Makam Research, a market research institute on behalf of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce (WKW), investigating the Viennese interviewees' opinion on the B&R Initiative.

The result shows that 76 percent of the Viennese are in favor of the multi-national railway project on the extension of the broad-gauge line to Vienna, via Slovakia, in order to connect Austria directly to B&R transportation network.

The survey result was released in a press conference held by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce (WKW) in Vienna.

Walter Ruck, president of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, said in the conference that the Austrian people and the economic community are very supportive of the B&R Initiative, because it is the largest infrastructure project in human history.

By establishing a transportation network which connects Europe, Asia and Africa, it will effectively drive regional economic development and improve people's livelihood, said Walter Ruck. (Edited by Li Wenxin, liwenxin@xinhua.org)
