A Call to Action: Setting a New Course for Transatlantic Economic Relations

April 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

With the election of Joe Biden, there is a window of opportunity to renew constructive dialogue on improving European-U.S. trade that can strengthen relations and set a path to closer cooperation in the future. Even before assuming his new role as Secretary of State, Antony Blinken said that one of the first steps to be taken by the Biden administration would be to “end the artificial trade war” between Europe and the United States. In early March, we started seeing signs of this intent in action. But, more needs to be done – and Germany can play a critical role in further strengthening the transatlantic economy.

Last month AmCham Germany published a position paper on what a new agenda for the transatlantic trade and investment partnership can look like. And, earlier this month it also released its annual Transatlantic Business Barometer. Join the ACG for a conversation with Daniel Andrich, the General Manager of AmCham Germany, regarding these two publications and an assessment of how Europe and the U.S. can work together to craft a new agenda for the transatlantic trade and investment.

Daniel Andrich is the General Manager of AmCham Germany. Previously, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) in Washington, DC. In that position, he has promoted transatlantic economic relations and represented the interests of German businesses in Washington, DC. From 2008 to 2016, Mr. Andrich worked for the Federation of German Industries (BDI) as Senior Policy Advisor for Global Governance and Trade Promotion in Berlin. Additionally, from 2013 onwards, he worked as Personal Advisor to the former BDI President, Ulrich Grillo. In 2012, Mr. Andrich had already worked as Senior Policy Advisor and Visiting Fellow at the Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) in Washington, DC. He obtained his M.A. in Political Science at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster.
