Aktuelles |

You are kindly invited to attend online a special lecture by Ambassador Katherine Tai who was appointed as United States Trade Representative by Joseph R. Biden. As a member of the president’s cabinet, Ambassador Tai is the principal trade advisor, negotiator, and spokesperson on U.S. trade policy. 

The conversation with U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Katherine Tai serves as a capstone of Transatlantic Innovation Week (TIW) – a U.S. Mission Germany initiative brought to life in 2021 by CG Munich highlighting the importance of transatlantic partnerships in all aspects of innovation.  We are also happy to welcome Timothy Liston, U.S. Consul General, Munich who will open the discussion on German-U.S. trade relations in an era of geopolitical and environmental crisis and transition. 

The discussion, moderated by Prof. Dr. Miranda Schreurs, will evaluate the economics of fostering sustainable innovation while managing the environmental effects, both literally and geopolitically, on the U.S. trade relationship with Germany and the Eurozone. Dean Urs Gasser will welcome guests to this hybrid event at the new School of Social Sciences and Technology at the Technical University of Munich.
