The European economy is finally improving again. In an integrated world economy stronger growth rates for the U.S. are good news for Europe, too. The countries of Europe that were the worst hit by the crisis see investors coming back and would like to call the crisis finally over. But how will their new competitive model for future growth look like? How can it convince its US stakeholders that “The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership” brings also benefit to the person on the street?
The speaking program will be followed by a networking reception with cocktails and appetizers. We hope you will be able to join us at this exciting event.
