EUROPE HOUSE CAPABILITY STATEMENT
Europe House is a not-for-profit corporation, fostering a better
global understanding of the European Union and its member
states, through business ventures, trade missions, education,
business exchanges, technology, and internet applications.
WHY EUROPE HOUSE
The European Union
The European Union--previously known as the European
Community--is an institutional framework for the construction of
a united Europe. It was created after World War II to unite the
nations of Europe economically so another war among them would
be unthinkable. Presently twenty seven countries are members of
the European Union and close to 500 million people share the
common institutions and policies that have brought an
unprecedented era of peace and prosperity to Western Europe.
The EU a Major Global Business
European integration was launched after World War II with the
active support of the United States, and the Atlantic
partnership has remained firm ever since.
As one of the world's largest trading powers, and as a leading
economic partner for most countries, the EU is a major player on
the world scene. Its scope for action extends increasingly
beyond trade and economic questions. More than 130 countries
maintain diplomatic relations with the EU, and the EU has over
100 delegations around the world. The United States and Europe
are economically interdependent. Some 40 percent of US
investment abroad goes to the EU, as do some 20 percent of US
exports, making the EU one of the top two markets for the US.
The EU-27 is the source of some 58 percent of foreign investment
in the US. Up to 3.5 million highly paid jobs in the US are due
to EU investment and a permanent dialogue is carried on between
the EU and the US on matters of mutual concern through regular
consultations at the highest official levels.
