From 3-9 May representatives of 21 AmChams from across Europe participated in the annual transatlantic conference in Washington DC and Dallas, Texas for a series of high-level government and business meetings.
During the conference, AmChams in Europe (ACE) launched their latest publication Together for Jobs & Growth: The Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership and the presentation of the updated Case for Investing in Europe at a cocktail reception hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
In Washington DC the delegation met with senior U.S. State and Commerce department officials, enjoyed a working dinner with the Manufacturer’s Alliance, visited C-SPAN’s offices and the Honeywell offices.
The delegation continued to Dallas where the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted a cocktail reception in honor of ACE’s visit with guest speaker Ron Kirk, former USTR, giving a keynote address. The trip concluded with a series of site visits to locally-based companies, AT&T Foundry, Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobil, Mary Kay and Kimberly-Clark Corporation.
Together with AmCham we can develop our networking not only in the local market with local companies, but also reach out to good partners far away from Latvia.
