This is the July 14, 2020 hearing on "The Importance of Transatlantic Cooperation During the COVID-19 Pandemic," held before the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, Energy, and the Environment of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives. From the opening statement of William Keating: "[W]e are holding the hearing to discuss the importance of transatlantic cooperation during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. We are tragically on our way to 600,000 deaths from COVID-19 worldwide during what has been the most significant upheaval in global security and stability since World War II. [...] Further serious issues we face domestically and internationally were not put on hold during this crisis. Last month, a call for equality echoed around the globe. The murder of George Floyd sparked a movement calling us to urgently address systemic racism and the senseless killing of black and brown people here in the United States, Europe, and around the world. [...] Americans deserve the best information, the best solutions from their government. And if those come from cooperation with our closest allies and partners, including Europe, which at the present time is experiencing some success in trying to control this virus, then we need to do everything in our power to work together on this." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Froman, Karen Donfried, Rachel Ellehuus, James Jay Carafano.
