German American Business Outlook 2014

In the fall of 2013, the German American Chambers of Commerce (GACCs) in cooperation with the Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT), and Roland Berger Strategy Consultants have for the 5th time surveyed German subsidiaries in the United States to ask for their economic outlook.

The annual German American Business Outlook survey aims to measure the satisfaction of German companies with the United States as an investment location and takes on a different topical angle each year.

This year's study is addressing the potential impact of a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and how companies perceive the opportunities associated with it. 1,900 German subsidiary headquarters all around the United States are being approached.
