Friday, 25 February 2022 – AmChams in Europe, the umbrella organisation for 46 AmChams in 44 countries across Europe and Eurasia, stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. The ongoing invasion of Ukraine violates international law and endangers peace and security across the region.
It poses a clear threat to fundamental values of human dignity, democracy, rule of law and solidarity. Our thoughts go out to all the individuals who are directly impacted across the region, including our fellow AmCham colleagues, their members, partners and relatives. Our network brings together individuals and organisations with deep ties across Europe and Eurasia, and around the world. It is built upon a strong belief in the importance of cooperation, dialogue and cultural understanding. The military actions underway jeopardise those ideals. AmChams in Europe supports all ongoing efforts to avoid further escalation, protect civilians and safeguard security and prosperity across the region.
AmChams in Europe serves as the umbrella organisation for 46 American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams) from 44 countries throughout Europe and Eurasia. In Europe, they represent the interests of more than 17,000 American and European companies employing 20 million workers and accounting for more than $1.1 trillion in investment on both sides of the Atlantic. As a bilateral voice of American and European companies, AmChams in Europe works to communicate the importance of the transatlantic economy in both Europe and the United States.
