secretive lobby group

The Transatlantic Policy Network (TPN) is a US organisation dedicated to influencing EU policy while describing it as a 'partnership'.[1]

For example, the document "The new trans-Atlantic agenda of December 1995" states "The Agenda's content reflects input from TPN's report "A European Strategy to the US" - the network's concise analysis of what Europeans needed to do to put relations with the US on a new, stronger footing".


From a small original base of support in the European Parliament and the US Congress, TPN has grown into a broadly-based multi-party group of EU and US politicians, corporate leaders, influential think-tanks, civil society stakeholders, and academics. Through regular informal dialogue and the maintenance of close personal relationships, TPN participants keep the two administrations focused on the indispensable goal of a strengthened Transatlantic Partnership.[2]

TPN helps to frame the debate on how governments should anticipate challenges, measure risks and adopt the necessary policies for global economic and political stability.[3] It promotes the closest possible partnership between the Governments & the peoples of the European Union & the United States.

The group is not only a lobbyist for big multinational corporations, but also a tool for the military complex, "focusing on the security challenges facing the transatlantic partners, NATO and defense policy", and looking at.."geopolitical changes and challenges, in particular, from Asia".[4]

How the lobbying operates

Transatlantic Week private conference

The Transatlantic Week brings together a critical mass of legislators, US Administration and EU institution officials as well as representatives from the business, academic, civil society, and trade association communities from both sides of the Atlantic. The annual multi-day conference looks at key issues in US-EU cooperation. In addition to developing practical recommendations for near-term action and responses to policy challenges, Transatlantic Week also aims to raise the profile of the Transatlantic Partnership and its potential in managing key challenges more effectively through joint action.[5]

Outreach Roundtables

Outreach roundtables are informal, high level discussions that enable TPN to make practical recommendations for improving transatlantic co-operation in a number of key areas. Under political leadership, these meetings in Brussels and Washington DC generate balanced conclusions reflecting the views of members on both sides of the Atlantic, including those working closely with the European and American administrations.

Political and Educational Exchanges

Members of the United States Congress and of the European Parliament regularly exchange visits so as to encourage a common understanding of the themes currently dominating the transatlantic relationship. Through time, TPN-organised meetings have forged friendships and broadened support for the Network’s goals, also facilitating staff exchanges organised by cooperating institutions.

Member companies

Businesses become members of TPN to work for a strong transatlantic partnership in the best interests of their companies...[6]

The TPN website lists member companies per 2020[7] as:










Dow Chemical

Eli Lilly


Hewlett Packard Enterprise



JP Morgan



Philip Morris International

Procter & Gamble



United Technologies


Walt Disney

The TPN website also lists "cooperating institutions" as being a part of the "TPN network" as some very central power organizations, including the CIA (German Marshall Fund) and NATO (Atlantic Council). [2]
