It explores critically important issues facing the transatlantic economic relationship. With exciting presentations, podium discussions featuring international panelists and distinguished speakers as well as in-depth practical workshops, the event aims to promote transatlantic dialogue and breathe new life into the long-standing relationship.

The conference took place at a new, modern venue directly at Frankfurt Airport and gave an excellent opportunity to discuss the implications of the U.S. presidential elections for the transatlantic economic relationship.
