RGIT - Issues

Represent – Communicate – Monitor

Since 1988, the Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) in Washington, DC has represented the interests of the German business community 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).

Furthermore, we communicate positions of our principals in the U.S., and we monitor and analyze economic policy trends in the U.S. to inform German stakeholders.

We collaborate closely with the German American Chambers of Commerce (AHK USA) in New York, Chicago, and Atlanta. Jointly, we provide general information, publications and contacts regarding economic topics in the U.S. for German companies.
