Portland: Germany and the United States: Shaping Our Transatlantic Future

October 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The ACG, WorldOregon, and the World Affairs Council of America will host a discussion with Dieter Kempf, President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI) and Peter Beyer, member of the German Bundestag and Coordinator of Transatlantic Cooperation, and Karen Wilde Goddin, former Managing Director for Business, Innovation and Trade with Business Oregon.

How can Germany and the US work together to address some of the key challenges presently facing the transatlantic relationship? And how does public opinion shape the decisions policymakers are making in Berlin and Washington, D.C.? From the future of labor to industrial tariffs (notably with autos), trade balances, and the seismic influence of Brexit to the socio-political challenges of digital disruption and a declining trust in democratic institutions on both sides of the Atlantic – what is the forecast for the U.S. and Germany’s intertwined transatlantic future?

This program hosted in partnership with Wunderbar Together, World Affairs Councils of America, and the American Council on Germany

Presented as part of the Wunderbar Together PopUp Tour, a multi-day experiential pop-up event in Pioneer Courthouse Square celebrating German-American friendship. For more information
