On Thursday, 29 November 2018, AmCham EU hosted a College of Europe and Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy alumni networking event.

Organised in cooperation with the Alumni Association of the College of Europe, the event was well-attended by alumni of both institutions as well as first- and second-year students of the joint College of Europe-Fletcher School Master of Arts in Transatlantic Affairs (MATA).

The alumni were welcomed by the Dean of The Fletcher School, Prof. Ian Johnstone, and the Rector of the College of Europe, Prof. Jörg Monar.

Maxime Bureau, Chairman of AmCham EU and Director for Government and Public Affairs for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at 3M, and Alumnus of the College of Europe, offered closing remarks. He underlined the strong economic ties linking the EU and the US and called for a de-escalation of the current tensions in transatlantic trade. As global economic leaders bound by common history and shared values, the EU and US should work together to address shared challenges, he asserted.

The networking hour that followed provided an opportunity for the alumni of the two institutions to meet and exchange ideas.
