A group of 20+ senior executives from AmCham EU’s Executive Council met with top government officials on Monday, 16 and Tuesday, 17 November. At a critical time for Europe and the world, they used this opportunity to convey American companies’ support for the EU recovery plan. Europe’s focus on the digital and green transitions will be key to power the economy. They also emphasised the need for political leaders to support a strong transatlantic relationship as well as multilateralism.

As part of the two-day programme, the group addressed a range of issues, including COVID-19, digital, EU-US relations, the economic recovery, the Green Deal, global trade, open strategic autonomy and the Single Market. The meetings featured the following officials:

  • Charles Michel, President of the European Council
  • Adina Vălean, Commissioner for Transport
  • Ambassador Tom Hanney, Permanent Representative of Ireland to the EU
  • Ambassador Ronald J. Gidwitz, Acting Representative of the United States to the EU
