Published: 9 February 2009

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy

We, the leading organizations representing businesses that trade, invest and operate in both the United States and Europe, write to urge you to make transatlantic economic integration a top priority for your Administration. At a time of global financial and economic crisis, and the concomitant pressures for protectionist actions at home and abroad, it is all the more important that the United States and Europe work together to deepen transatlantic economic relations, bolster the competitiveness of our firms, spur job creation and promote economic recovery on both sides of the Atlantic.
