      U.S. subsidiaries of German-owned firms play a vital role in the U.S. economy, with competitive German businesses contributing to the economic health and prosperity of the American economy.

      German companies employ around 672.000 people in the U.S., thereby making Germany the 3rd largest foreign employer in the country. German businesses accounted for 10.5% of the 6.4 million insourced jobs in the United States in 2014.

      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.
