      RGIT – Deepening the transatlantic marketplace

      The Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) encourages the deepening of the U.S.-German economic and trade relationship. RGIT represents the interests of German industry in the U.S. on behalf of its principals, the Federation of German Industries (BDI) and the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK). President is Daniel Andrich. 

      The transatlantic economic relationship is very close. The United States and Germany are important partners in shaping globalization. Deep transatlantic economic integration is based on a trusting business environment, a reliable framework, and open markets. This is what RGIT supports — on both sides of the Atlantic.
