The Great Divergence: Are US and European Economies Growing Apart?
The American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) is pleased to invite you to attend our Annual Symposium in Germany, this year in Frankfurt, on "The Great Divergence: Are U.S. and European Economies Growing Apart?" on Tuesday, June 23, 2015, at the Deutsche Börse AG.
Together with an extraordinary panel of speakers and a keynote speech by the U.S. Ambassador to the EU Anthony Gardner, we will look at the impact of diverging monetary policies on the real economies in the U.S. and Europe and assess the ongoing efforts to make the financial system, and within it, banks, safer and more efficient. The event is graciously hosted by Deutsche Börse Group.

AICGS works hard to strengthen the German-American relationship in an evolving Europe and changing world. Throughout the recent economic turbulence, the U.S. still remains Germany's principal trading partner outside the EU, and Germany the U.S.' most important trading partner in Europe. This Symposium is one part of a continuing project to examine the impact of financial and economic policies, and to increase cooperation and understanding. We look forward to gathering a group of American and German experts from the private and public sectors for a high-level dialogue, and we hope that you can be a part of it.
