European Parliament Outreach
The European Parliament Outreach Task Force complements the work of AmCham EU’s committees by shaping advocacy on horizontal issues and facilitating outreach to the European Parliament, strengthening ties between AmCham EU and Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), their national affiliates and national delegations in the European Parliament. The Task Force also aims at developing closer relations with the leadership of the five main political groups in the European Parliament as well as the five main European political parties.
We have published key recommendations for the European Parliament that take into account challenges like navigating Brexit, the rise of populism and the EU's need to demonstrate the ability to take the lead and deliver for European citizens. As the effects of digitalisation and globalisation, which have only been highlighted by the ongoing pandemic, continue to transform our economies, societies around the world are pressured to become more resilient.
