Šefčovič was not the first Commissioner to visit the United States following Trump’s election.

From the US, the highest level visit to Brussels so far was made by Vice President Mike Pence.

US vice president pledges support for EU and NATO in first Brussels visit

US Vice President Mike Pence appeared to row back on President Donald Trump’s statements against NATO and the European Union in his first visit to Brussels.


“We will need many more meetings like this to understand each other better, to look for the best way how we can cooperate,” Šefčovič said.

He stressed that the new American government was focusing on economic growth and job creation, which he said was “good, because we do the same in the EU”.

The Commission vice-president said that in all his meetings and public appearances, he highlighted how important EU-US relations had become.
