Germany is an export nation and therefore relies, like hardly any other country, upon free markets. The US is the second largest market worldwide.

The Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) along with Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) hosted an international open forum on German-American economic relations. Major talking points included the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations.
