Public Affairs Overview

AmCham Germany’s public affairs and government relations activities revolve around the work of fourteen specialized policy committees.

The policy committees constitute AmCham Germany's forum for discussing and defining policy recommendations on critical transatlantic business and government issues. They are the voice of transatlantic business and foster the dialogue between AmCham Germany’s member companies and decision-makers in Berlin, Brussels and Washington, DC as well as other stakeholders in politics, business and civil society. Position statements and press releases are developed in order to deliver members' opinions to government, the public and relevant stakeholders.

The policy committees of AmCham Germany are membership-led and membership-driven. The commitment of our member companies enables AmCham Germany to advocate a healthy business climate in Germany, making AmCham Germany a well-respected voice on transatlantic business among all relevant policy-makers.
