11/20/2017 Press Release, Announcements

New York, November 13, 2017 – German business is an important contributor to the US economy: it drives growth for industries from automotive to wind energy; it employs more than 700,000 Americans, and it invests roughly $255 billion in the US economy.

Each year, the German American Business Outlook (GABO) offers strategic insight into the current state and future expectations of German companies in the US, highlighting key challenges and opportunities for German companies in the US.

The German American Business Outlook is one of the most important economic indicators of German American business relations. The seven German Chamber offices in the US and the Washington, D.C. liaison office, together with KPMG, survey more than 2,500 German subsidiaries in the United States on their views of the US as an investment location.

The survey results will be presented on December 11, at the midtown Manhattan office of JP Morgan Chase. A distinguished panel of CEO’s representing major German American businesses in the US will also be featured at the event.

The panel discussion will be followed by a networking reception hosted by JP Morgan. Approximately 150 representatives of the German-American business community are expected to attend.

Registration is required. To do so, please visit: #GACCGABO17

NOTE: Press members interested in attending should contact James Freeman at the German American Chamber of Commerce in New York (contact details above).
