Priorities and Pitfalls for the Transatlantic Partnership

There have always been ups and downs in the German-American relationship. With the election of Joe Biden, many Germans hope for a “Neustart” for the transatlantic alliance. The tone and tenor are likely to change – and there are common challenges facing Europe and the United States. However, the partnership is not without its controversial sticking points

On November 30, the ACG hosted a discussion with Bundestag Member Peter Beyer (CDU), who also serves as Coordinator for Transatlantic Cooperation in the German Federal Foreign Office, who discussed the priorities and challenges in developing a transatlantic agenda.

This discussion is part of a series of [virtual] Transatlantic Town Halls: German Bundestag Member Dialogues, which is being organized by the ACG under the auspices of WunderbarTogether USA 2020, a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
