Dear Reader, Dear Members and Friends,
During our visit in New York City last month, one thing became very obvious: there is a continued interest on both sides of the Atlantic to keep up the vital partnership with one another.
Free trade internationally and between the US and Europe is essential and maybe this fact has to be underlined these days. Both economies dwell on open markets and rely on strong transatlantic business relations. Receding trade between Bavaria and the US may serve as warning signal in order to reinforce traditional ties.
I am personally very much committed to foster US-Bavarian relations to the benefit of all of us.
Wishing you and your family and friends a festive holiday season filled with joy and peace.
