Helping your American Business in the EU
The U.S. Commercial Service at the United States Mission to the European Union is ready to help your company understand the European Union and to seize its opportunities.

European Union

With 450 million wealthy consumers in the 27 Member States of the European Union (the EU) – representing the United States’ largest export market in the world – the U.S. Commercial Service at the U.S. Mission to the European Union facilitates American business in the EU through strategic partner identification, project and policy advocacy, market intelligence, and virtual trade events. On behalf of all American businesses, we also help resolve market access barriers through active monitoring of EU legislation.

Drawing on the resources of our U.S. Commercial Service offices throughout Europe, our teams of commercial diplomats and commercial specialists help American firms compete and win. In fact, the EU’s rich consumer base, diverse economy, deep business ties to the United States, strong rule of law protections, and 25 million small and medium-size enterprises resulted in $231 billion of U.S. exports to the EU in 2020 alone.
