Mar 26, 2020

On March 26, American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) launched the Transatlantic Economy 2020. Research for the report was conducted independently by Daniel Hamilton and Joseph Quinlan for the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies and commissioned by AmCham EU and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The annual Transatlantic Economy survey offers the most up-to-date set of facts and figures describing transatlantic jobs, trade and investment:

  • 16 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic
  • 50% of global investment into the U.S. comes from Europe
  • 61% of U.S. global investment goes to Europe
  • Half of total global personal consumption
  • 5.6 trillion USD in total commercial sales a year
  • One third of global GDP (in terms of purchasing power)

This year's study also features new insights into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brexit, Chinese investment in North America and Europe, the transatlantic energy economy, and US investment flows into Europe.
