Last week 30 representatives from 28 AmChams across Europe took part in their annual visit to Washington, DC and, new for this year, New York. The program began in Washington, DC with briefings from the US Chamber of Commerce, the US State Department and the Atlantic Council, as well as a reception hosted by the US Chamber to launch AmCham in Europe's new report The Case for Investing in Europe 2013: Why US Firms Should Stay the Course. The report, authored by Joe Quinlan, Transatlantic Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins University, demonstrates that the case for businesses to invest in the European market is as strong as ever, despite all the current bad press Europe receives.
In New York, representatives attended a roundtable organized by the US Council for International Business on what the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership would entail and to launch the Case for Investing in Europe. The roundtable was then followed by a series of company visits to Pfizer, IBM, Citi and the Huffington Post.
