This year’s Transatlantic Conference theme is ‘The transatlantic relationship: navigating towards a more sustainable future?’. The conference will take the pulse of the EU-US relationship and will explore the role of businesses in building an environmental, political and socially sustainable future.

The Transatlantic Economy Report 2020 will be launched during the event. This annual report presents the most up-to-date facts and figures about the EU-US economic relationship. The study includes dedicated profiles for 30+ European countries and all US states.

Highlights from the 2019 Transatlantic Conference

As part of Transatlantic Week, we will also be presenting the Transatlantic Award 2020. Launched in 2004, the award acknowledges an individual dedicated to the promotion and growth of the transatlantic economy.

The Transatlantic Business Award 2019 was presented to Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner for Trade, in recognition of her commitment to strengthening the transatlantic economy throughout her tenure in Brussels. The award recognises an individual who has demonstrated exceptional dedication to the pursuit of a strong and prosperous EU-US relationship.
