The World Bank Group's presence in Vienna dates back to 2004, when the European Investor Outreach Program, an initiative of the current Vienna based office of the Investment Climate Department, was managed out of the Austrian capital. Other World Bank Group programs have followed suit, including the Centre for Financial Reporting Reform, the Financial Sector Advisory Centre, as well as the Danube Water Program and the Urban Partnership Program.

In 2013, the management of the World Bank's program in the Western Balkans was decentralized to Vienna, allowing it to take full advantage of the proximity to client countries. The expanded Vienna office was made possible with the kind support of the Austrian Government.
