    All Committees

    2020 was a year like no other. What started with optimism around a fresh European Commission mandate, as well as a US election on the horizon, quickly gave way when the first cases of COVID-19 landed on European shores. Despite the challenging circumstances, we worked to continue to provide value for our members by adapting to the unique context. The impacts of the pandemic have only further highlighted the importance for AmCham EU to continue being a strong voice for American companies in Europe. Our 2020 annual report provides a snapshot of how AmCham EU continues to be the best representative for US business committed to and invested in Europe.
