Digital Policy

The Digital Policy Committee represents the interests of AmCham Germany members in the digital sector as a central contact. The committee is made up of representatives from American and German companies. We follow the digital policy debates in Germany and provide detailed and constructive suggestions for regulations and political projects. The committee meets regularly with representatives from politics, science, business and society to discuss current issues, challenges and solutions in digital policy.

(Note: Until April 2020, the Digital Policy Committee was called the Telecommunications, Internet & Media (TIM) Committee.)
