Executive Council

The Executive Council (ExCo) is a forum for senior executives responsible for the European operations of some of AmCham EU’s largest member companies. The mission of the Executive Council of AmCham EU is to drive for the continuous improvement of European global competitiveness, through targeted dialogue at the highest levels between its members and senior policy-makers of the EU institutions, Member States, and international organisations.

Priority areas

ExCo focuses on driving European global competitiveness. To that end, ExCo has commissioned several independent research publications such as Europe 2020: Competitive or Complacent?, which provides insight into spurring growth, innovation and jobs on a global scale. ExCo’s The EU Single Market: A Work in Progress sets out the business case for deepening the Single Market through a series of concrete case studies. ExCo’s latest commissioned publication, Agenda for Action 2014-2019, outlines the following priorities:

  • Build skills for the future
