Register for the Transatlantic Forum 2023 in Berlin

The Atlantic Council and Atlantik-Brücke are pleased to invite you to the Transatlantic Forum on GeoEconomics on September 22, 2023. This year’s event follows the inaugural Forum held last year.

In the heart of Berlin, we will convene economic and financial leaders from both sides of the Atlantic. At this year’s conference, we will outline a way forward on the use of tools of economic statecraft.

The G7 response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has shown us a new dimension of transatlantic economic coordination. The levers of sanctions, export controls, and asset freezes have been pulled to pursue foreign policy and national security objectives.

But the use of these tools has raised important questions. How can both the US and Europe avoid becoming economically dependent on adversarial powers without compromising growth or triggering more inflation? Which rules and best practices should form a new blueprint for economic statecraft? How has the West’s response to Putin’s aggression reshaped the contours of the role of the dollar and euro in the global economy?

Join us in Berlin as we launch new research on these challenges and bring together leaders from both the private and public sector to outline the next steps the US and Europe should take together. The full agenda and speaker line-up will be announced in the coming weeks.

Explore highlights from last year’s Transatlantic Forum in Frankfurt

In 2022, in partnership with Atlantik-Brücke, the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center hosted the inaugural Transatlantic Forum on GeoEconomics in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Forum provided an opportunity to advance the transatlantic dialogue from crisis response to addressing the key economic issues that will underpin the US-Europe partnership over the next decade.

Speakers at the four high-level sessions discussed the international roles of the dollar and the euro, the future of transatlantic trade, a roadmap for digital assets, and the new era of economic statecraft. The event launched new research in each area.
