US Domestic and Economic Policy

4,700 companies benefit from German capital investment in the United States. German subsidiaries create more than 672,000 jobs in the US, with almost half of them in the manufacturing sector. As a result, German subsidiaries are the third-largest foreign employer in the US and therefore play an active role in shaping the US market. At the same time, the success of German subsidiaries depends on the design of the US economic policy framework. One of the most important issues for German companies is the ability to recruit well-trained employees to produce high-quality products in the manufacturing sector. Furthermore, companies in the US depend on a well-functioning infrastructure, reliable legal and tax systems, and efficient bureaucratic rules.
