As French President Emmanuel Macron heads to the United States for a state visit, what is the state of US-French relations? A year after the AUKUS agreement and subsequent diplomatic fallout, how important is the state visit—President Biden’s first—for US-French relations? How will the United States and France stay united in their efforts against Russia’s illegal war in Ukraine while managing differences in approach towards an increasingly assertive China? How much can we anticipate the US Inflation Reduction Act will impact not only US-French and US-European trade relations but also cooperation more broadly? 

On this episode of #AtlanticDebrief, Europe Center Senior Director Jörn Fleck sits down with Georgina Wright, Senior Fellow and Director of Institut Montaigne’s Europe Program, to discuss President Macron’s state visit and US-French relations.
