AGI-KAS Transatlantic Trade Week

Building a Smarter German-American Partnership

The American-German Institute at Johns Hopkins University and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung collaborated on a series of online events examining three areas for U.S.-EU trade policy cooperation. These include agreeing a joint approach to China’s economic behavior through a better balance between engagement and enforcement; reforming the World Trade Organization through new rules in areas like subsidies and state-owned enterprises and reviving its dispute settlement system; and reconciling trade and climate policy goals through the WTO, supply chain strategy, and a carbon border adjustment mechanism.

The online events feature Peter Beyer MdB, Member of the German Bundestag and Coordinator of Transatlantic Cooperation of the Federal Government, Dr. Sabine Weyand, Director-General for Trade, European Commission, and Jamila Thompson, Senior Advisor to the U.S. Trade Representative, as well as other expert speakers.
