Welcoming the new European Parliament

The last five years have tested European unity and the post-war world order which resulted in the EU having to take the lead and ensure it delivered for European citizens. As the effects of globalisation and digitalisation continue to transform our economies, the EU must become more resilient. The European Parliament has a unique opportunity to bring about a real difference to citizens’ lives.

AmCham EU would like to congratulate new and re-elected Members of the European Parliament. The overall rise in voter turnout is a positive signal and boosts the legitimacy of the EU.

AmCham EU is committed to a strong, united and competitive EU and is a partner in finding ways to bring greater opportunities to secure a bright and prosperous future for Europe.

Supporting more than 4.7 million jobs in Europe, US companies are an integral part of the fabric of European communities, innovation and growth. In the context of today's global challenges, and with a new EU legislative term approaching, now is the time to bring new ideas forward.

That's why AmCham EU has identified four priority areas we believe should drive the political agenda over the next five years. With sustained focus, Europe can remain one of the most attractive regions in the world to do business, but also one of the best places to live, study, work and raise a family.

Four priority areas to move forward together

  • Education
  • Skills
  • Inclusion
  • Smart regulation
  • Better harmonisation and implementation
  • Capital, digital, energy and transport
  • Transatlantic partnership
  • Trade and investment
  • Sustainable development
  • Human capital
  • Research and innovation
  • Infrastructure and best-in-class public procurement
