Aerospace & Defense

Germany and the United States of America have been partners in the aerospace and defense sector for over sixty years, making it a transatlantic success story. To continuously expand this well-established cooperation,  AmCham Germany’s Aerospace and Defense Committee promotes a close and regular dialogue on transatlantic foreign and defense policy between business representatives, legislative and executive branches. Special focus is given to the common defense policy challenges facing Germany, Europe and the USA, the future of the transatlantic defense industry as well as the continuation of successful transatlantic cooperation. Furthermore, the timely delivery of effective security technology at competitive costs is essential for both Germany and the US. To achieve this, it is necessary that both countries constantly improve their regulatory frameworks and open their markets for each other. Competition and open markets do not only guarantee the best value for money, but enhance and simplify transatlantic cooperation programs.
