Transatlantic Report shows strong EU-US partnership

Mar 21, 2023

A new Transatlantic Report 2023 from the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce highlights that the key drivers of the transatlantic economy – investment, trade and company income – posted strong results again in 2022. Despite the war in Ukraine, supply chain disruptions, dramatic energy shifts, high inflation and tightening financial conditions, last year was record-breaking across a range of indicators:

  • U.S.-Europe trade in goods reached an all-time high of €1.12 trillion (.2 trillion).
  • U.S. company affiliates in Europe earned an estimated €303 billion (5 billion), while European affiliates in the U.S. earned €140 billion (0 billion), the second highest level ever.
  • U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe hit their highest levels ever. U.S. exporters shipped roughly 2.5 times more LNG supplies to Europe in 2022 than in 2021.

The report also outlines avenues to advance the EU-U.S. partnership with the Trade and Technology Council and new opportunities to foster innovation and reduce strategic dependencies in the area of green technology.

The data is also available on Thriving Together, an online platform that showcases the deep ties that bind Europe and the United States, including numbers from The Transatlantic Economy 2023. Visit the platform: thrivingtogether.eu.
