AmCham Germany's Purpose - What we do

AmCham Germany's goals are to support unrestricted trade and investment between the United States and Germany, and to promote a healthy, open and productive business climate between the two countries. AmCham Germany represents the business interests of American firms located in Germany and the United States and also acts on behalf of its German members, many of whom maintain significant holdings in the United States.

AmCham Germany was founded 1903. Today, AmCham Germany is the largest American Chamber of Commerce in Europe.


US Chamber of Commerce

More than 96% of US Chamber members are small businesses with 100 employees or fewer.

Although a member of the US Chamber, AmCham Germany is entirely independent in its governance and finances from the US Chamber.
