Philadelphia, PA | February 2019 – RP CEO, Jonathan Spadt, will moderate a discussion for the Congressional Study Group on Germany (CSGG) on March 4, 2019 in RP’s Washington, D.C. office. The subject matter of the roundtable will be: The United States, Germany, and China: A Discussion on Transatlantic Trade and Intellectual Property. The CSGG is a program of the United States Association of Former Members of Congress, a bipartisan, nonprofit, voluntary alliance of former United States Senators and Representatives. The CSGG works with German political foundations to support travel by Bundestag members to the United States, where they learn more about the American electoral system, the work being done in the United States by German companies and the culture of America. In exchange, the CSGG also creates study tours for U.S. Members of Congress, Chiefs of Staff and District Directors, to better understand Germany’s role on the European stage.
The luncheon will bring together a multitude of House Chiefs of Staff in conjunction with members of the CSGG’s Business Advisory Council, of which RatnerPrestia is a member. The Business Advisory Council of the CSGG exists to provide important business perspectives from the companies who create economic growth both in the United States and in Germany. Spadt noted, “RP’s support of this important work is born out of the strong ties we have with many German companies operating globally and especially transatlantically. The relationship between the U.S. and Germany is strong.”
