About

Abstract: The United States and Europe are faced with substantial instabilities and considerable imbalances in the economic as well as the political domain. Their longstanding cooperation builds on a shared, value-based perspective: enabling a better future for the greatest number of their citizens. This requires forceful, common efforts to rise to important challenges: achieving energy security, financial stability, sustainable and inclusive growth. Sustainable progress could serve as a guiding principle, a common commitment.
