About The Association
Viscount Etienne Davignon, Minister of State, Chairman of Brussels Airlines “As the world becomes smaller, the opportunities for open discussion between European, American and emerging markets’ business and political leaders become more and more important. AECA contributes significantly to this exchange, with a particular emphasis on the development of the European Union in a challenging globalised world.”
Frans Van Daele
Baron Frans Van Daele, Head of Cabinet to His Majesty the King of Belgium, Royal Palace “Both Europe and America know that in times of need they can always call on their friends on the other side of the ocean. In between times, they so often seem to misread each other that transatlantic organizations like AECA are essential to reduce the background noise and help governments to focus on the essentials and on the many opportunities this relationship can bring to economy and security. Let us not waste the many win-wins which are out there!”
David McAllister, Chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs & Member of the Delegation for relations with the U.S., European Parliament "As a supporter of international cooperation and understanding, the AECA is an important platform for dialogue and exchange. There are many tasks and challenges, the United States and the European Union can only solve together. And there will be new ones. Therefore the AECA supports a close cooperation, as it recognizes the challenges of today and brings it on the agenda."
