The EU and the United States are bound together by strong and stable economic ties. Outside the EU, the United States is Germany's third-largest trading partner. As the voice of transatlantic business, AmCham Germany is committed to enhancing German-American cooperation, maintaining an open business climate and promoting international investment on both sides of the Atlantic.

AmCham Germany continues to advocate for a free trade agreement between the EU and the United States. Such an agreement presents a unique chance to unite two of the world's largest economic areas, resulting in numerous benefits for society and business on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.
