Join us for the launch of the Transatlantic Economy 2021 report during AmCham EU's Transatlantic Conference. The annual report, produced by the U.S. Chamber, AmCham EU, and the Wilson Center, presents the most up-to-date facts and figures about the economic relationship between the United States and Europe.

AmCham EU's Transatlantic Conference will take place over three days with Wednesday, March 24 focused on transatlantic trade and foreign affairs. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will give a keynote address to open the conference. The conference continues on Thursday and Friday (March 25-26) with additional discussions focused on sustainability and the digital economy.

The advent of the Biden Administration presents the chance to reset the transatlantic relationship and focus not on what divides us, but what unites us. Joint transatlantic leadership is needed to rebuild a world economy devastated by the impact of COVID-19 and to ensure future healthy, connected, and sustainable societies.
