AmCham EU: The Transatlantic Economy 2019: Czech-U.S. Trade Profile


The 2019 Transatlantic Economy report


No two other regions in the world are as deeply integrated as Europe and the US:

  • 16 million jobs on both sides of the Atlantic
  • Half of total global consumption
  • 5.5 trillion USD in total commercial sales a year
  • One third of global GDP (in terms of purchasing power)




America's investment base in the Czech Republic is small but has risen by one-third over the past ten years to $5.4 billion in 2017. This is down from a peak of $6.4 billion in 2013, but still is significantly larger than investment by Czech Republic firms in the U.S., says the 2019 edition of the Transatlantic Economy report published by the AmCham EU and U.S. Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with The Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies.  

Affiliate employment by U.S. multinationals in the Czech Republic fell sharply in 2016, from 94,000 employees to 83,000, yet this is estimated to have picked up slightly in 2017 to almost 85,000 workers, the report says.
