Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) 1130 Connecticut Avenue Suite 1200 Washington, DC 20036

The Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) together with the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) cordially invite you to discuss the future of advanced manufacturing in the United States.

Spurring a broad renaissance in American manufacturing has been one of the overarching economic objectives of the US Administration. German companies in the US contribute to this renaissance. Almost 80% of the research and development expenditures of German companies in the US are in manufacturing. Additionally, almost half of the 674,000 people employed by German companies in the US work in manufacturing.


At the same time, both Germany and the US are undergoing a digital transformation in manufacturing and services that may change the nature of industries, the workforce, and our economies. How can we combine our respective strengths across the Atlantic to shape the future of advanced manufacturing and digitalization proactively?
