The Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) is the executive council of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council. The TABD program is the highest forum within the TABC and brings together chief executive officers and C-Suite executives from leading American and European companies operating in the U.S., Europe, and globally who advocate for a barrier-free transatlantic market that will contribute to growth, employment, innovation and sustainability in the global economy. “Dialogue” is part of TABD because it is a key aspect of how TABD operates – bringing together business and government at the highest levels to allow candid exchange of views and discussion on the opportunities to further integrate the world’s largest trading bloc. TABD is the only CEO-driven business organization solely dedicated to advancing the U.S.-EU economic agenda. TABD provides its member executives high-level access to U.S. Cabinet Secretaries and European Commissioners. It has traditionally provided a set of policy recommendations important to business ahead of each U.S.-EU Summit; and on occasion, presented these to the U.S.-EU Leaders at the Summit itself.
