Brussels, 9 November 2020 – The American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris on the results of the 2020 US presidential election.

American companies in Europe are committed to working with the new US Administration to advance the trade and investment relationship between the EU and the US. A strong EU-US partnership, based on shared values and interests, is critical to jobs, prosperity and security on both sides of the Atlantic. The EU and the US are each other’s strongest allies.

Susan Danger, CEO, AmCham EU, said: ‘The new term is an opportunity to strengthen transatlantic leadership. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for common solutions to global issues is ever more apparent and urgent. We look forward to the new Administration’s engagement with the EU and like-minded partners to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges, strengthen multilateral institutions and power the economic recovery.’
