Relationships are commonly defined by dates and this year marks 25th and 50th anniversaries of the Representative of German Industry and Trade (RGIT) and our sister chamber in Chicago, the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest (GACC Midwest).
In celebrating the significant milestones, GACC South President Martina Stegmeier and Vice President Stefanie Jehlitschka travelled to Washington, D.C. and Chicago to attend a series of business conferences while concluding their visit at the renowned Annual MERLIN Awards Gala.
A combined seventy-five years of representing German industry provides for some truly rewarding highlights and while a number of things change in growing older – one thing has remained constant. The transatlantic trade relationship between Germany and the United States is still atop in terms of global importance. Both countries play a vital role in each other’s economy by creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in a wide spectrum of industries.
As a network, we are proud of the success and longevity of our efforts and look forward to supporting German business and trade for years to come.
