2012 Transatlantic Business Roundtable & Transatlantic Company of the Year

Sponsored by:


AmCham Denmark is pleased to welcome our members and invited guests to attend our 2012 Transatlantic Business Roundtable and presentation of the Transatlantic Company of the Year.

Although often taken for granted, the Transatlantic economy is by far the most important economic relationship in the world. While both the U.S. and EU continue to face serious economic challenges, both have put innovation and economic growth at the top of their respective agendas.

Therefore, mid-way through Denmark’s EU Presidency, AmCham Denmark is honored to have U.S. Ambassador to the European Union William E. Kennard on hand to share his thoughts on the Transatlantic economic relationship, key issues, and what the future might bring.

Following the program, AmCham’s Honorary President, U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Laurie S. Fulton will announce the winner of the 2012 Transatlantic Company of the Year. This annual award is aimed at highlighting the significance of Transatlantic trade and investment between the U.S. and Denmark.
