The transatlantic economic partnership is on stable footing and has been able to counter the turbulent last few years and the strained political relationship with robust and trusting relations. Nevertheless, we must not take the success of the transatlantic economy for granted. Transatlantic businesses expect a new agenda for the trade and investment partnership between the EU, Germany and the US. It must be based above all on the strong will to cooperate on both sides of the Atlantic.
Shaping a new agenda for the transatlantic trade and investment partnership can only succeed if Europe and the US work together. Businesses on both sides of the Atlantic expect the EU and the US to actively reach out to each other, seek dialogue and work together to develop solutions to the challenges of the 21st century. Both sides must equally explore new ways to define common interests and challenges. Germany should take a leading role in Europe in revitalizing transatlantic relations.
It's time to act, now!
