“While the USA and Germany have had business and cultural relationships for decades, the 21st century presents an opportunity to further strengthen and grow our collaboration. Whether in business and education or research and development, technology or healthcare, working together will only help each of our respective countries meet and solve the problems and challenges facing our local community as well as the world,” says Former US Ambassador Philip Murphy.
