Philip Marschall from our Düsseldorf office spoke at the Transatlantic Business Forum today, held at Munich’s Park Hilton and titled “President Trump: Opportunity or Risk for Germany’s Mittelstand”. While his presentation shed light on the economic development landscape and incentive opportunities for U.S. investors, multiple other experts gave their views on tax, legal, immigration and market entry aspects – including changes we might see short- to mid-term under the new administration. The forum presented an excellent opportunity for companies interested in the U.S. market to gather valuable information and meet directly with U.S. community representatives who had made the long way over.

Panel discussion outcomes supported NavCon’s predictions on accelerated FDI growth from Germany and Europe in the second half of 2017, once a clear political agenda under the new U.S. administration has emerged.

The FDI Consultants Workshops organized by the European American Investment Council (EAIC) followed the event. Navigator Consulting supports the council’s efforts in bringing U.S. Economic Development Organizations closer to key FDI origin markets.
