Trends and Challenges for U.S. Companies in the EU:

  • The U.S. and EU share the largest bilateral trade and investment relationship in the world. While their approaches to common economic issues often diverge, their longstanding and integrated commercial ties help foster a harmonized and mutually beneficial partnership.
  • U.S. companies hold an important stake in trade issues that arise on both sides of the Atlantic that affect jobs, standards and the regulatory environment.
