Trade & Economy – A message from the Economic Section of the Consulate

The mission of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles is to facilitate the bilateral flow of goods, services and investments between the Czech Republic and the United States of America, in particular the US States on the West Coast that fall under our jurisdiction.

For the Czech Republic, a member of the European Union and NATO, the United States has been a No.1 exporting partner outside the European Union. The US companies have been a key source of vital investments into the Czech economy creating jobs and growths.

At the same time the United States is increasingly a preferred destination for Czech investments creating new jobs and opportunities here in the US. Mutual trade and investment partnership also facilitate the exchange of know-how and innovations.
