“Putin will also have talks with Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann. Special attention will be paid to trade and investment cooperation, and the implementation of joint projects in the energy sector, transport and high tech,” the Kremlin added.
Putin is planning to meet with Russian and Austrian businessmen, the Kremlin noted.
The South Stream gas project will be in the focus of Putin’s meetings with Austrian officials, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said.

He confirmed that Russian Railways President Vladimir Yakunin and Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller would be among members of the delegation.
During the visit, Putin is due to meet with OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Swiss President Didier Burkhalter.
