AmChams in Europe, the umbrella organization of 50 AmChams from 48 countries, annually organizes a U.S. delegation. These visits aim to increase awareness of AmChams in Europe, strengthen partnerships, and gain insight into the current U.S. business and political landscape.

This year’s annual conference is in Washington, D.C., and Miami. From April 22 to 26, 2024, ACE Executive Directors and representatives from the American Chambers of Commerce are meeting with political and economic decision-makers and visiting government institutions and corporate headquarters.

The first day of this year’s delegation program included presentations at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on U.S. elections, the economy, geopolitical reality, and transatlantic relations, visits to the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Small Business Administration, and an evening reception at the residence of the EU ambassador. Tuesday began at the Transatlantic Business Works Summit – ❝Driving Competitiveness in a Challenging World,❞ highlighting a crucial point: “The only solution is partnerships based on shared values.” We had the privilege to visit the U.S. Department of State once again this year, where crucial foreign policies are shaped and where we consistently emphasize the importance of partnerships with the U.S. Embassies. This was followed by a visit to the Atlantic Council, where the ACE network gained valuable insights into the current political climate in the U.S. and an expert outlook on what’s to come in the U.S. election year 2024. On Wednesday, the delegation moved to Miami, where they visited the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and the Royal Caribbean Group.

On the first day, during the evening reception at the EU Ambassador Residence, our CEO, Ajša Vodnik, MSc, who is also Chair of AmChams in Europe, shared her thoughts, emphasizing the importance of international relations in achieving common goals: “As the most important partners, we have built a strong foundation for economic growth and prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic.” She expressed pride in standing together to promote democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, as well as underlined her commitment to continue building on the partnership, strengthening bonds, and creating a brighter future with colleagues from Europe, Eurasia, and the U.S.
