Chairman of Atlantik-Brücke and former Vice-Chancellor of Germany Sigmar Gabriel welcomed U.S. Ambassador to Germany Amy Gutmann, Ph.D., who spoke about the historical significance of going as U.S. ambassador to Germany, the country her father had to flee, and highlighting the importance of the alliance between the U.S. and Germany. I had the opportunity to meet Amy Gutmann who also stressed the importance of energy and sustainability when she visited our table where I was discussing these topics with Atlantik-Brücke Board Members and Members.
