President Trump's visit to Brussels

24 May 2017

US President Donald Trump’s visit to Brussels this week to meet with EU leaders is an important milestone for the transatlantic relationship.

For a century, EU-US cooperation has formed the bedrock of our shared security and prosperity and remains a key driver of US investment in Europe. Today, the EU-US economy generates almost half of world GDP and employs 15 million workers on both sides of the Atlantic. At a time of continued global uncertainty, reinforcing our ties is more important than ever.  

Susan Danger, CEO, AmCham EU, said: “The meetings between President Trump and EU leaders so early in his term should be used to send an important signal that the transatlantic partnership is here to stay. The two partners should reaffirm the unique nature of their ties and commit to closer cooperation in the coming months and years, to help address our common challenges and to maximise opportunities in the modern global economy.”
