An economic outlook from Chicago

This past January, the German American Chambers of Commerce worked together with the Representative of German Industry and Trade to host the Annual Economic Forum in Chicago. Executives and economists from around the country met to discuss their projections for 2012 in the international and German-American business markets, and share their opinions on the state of the transatlantic economy. Vice President and Director of Marketing Services Stefanie Jehlitschka represented the Atlanta office at the conference, where she heard a series of noted speakers from Volkswagen, the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, and Baxter International, Inc., to name just a few.

Congratulations to our colleagues in Chicago on a successful event!
