In an interview with ORF Carinthia, the Ambassador stated that Austria and Carinthia “have done an excellent job in managing this [COVID 19] crisis.”

When asked about the current demonstrations against racism and police violence, Ambassador Traina emphasized:

 “The U.S. and all countries must continue to be extremely vigilant about racism. We must be self-analytical, and we must all think how can we do better.”
