German American Business Outlook 2016

The German American Business Outlook is one of the
most important economic indicators of German American
business relations.

The seven German Chamber offices and the Washington, D.C. liaison office, together with Roland Berger Strategy Consulting, survey more than 1,900 German subsidiaries in the United States on their views of the U.S. as an investment location.

This year's study is especially addressing the transition toward Industry 4.0/the Smart Factory, Skilled Workforce, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

The results presentation and a panel discussion as well as the GACC award ceremony was held at Thomson Reuters in Times Square in New York City on Monday, December 14, 2015 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm.
