ICC was founded in the aftermath of the First World War when no world system of rules governed trade, investment, finance or commercial relations. And Belgium has been one of the five countries founding the ICC in 1919. Since then, ICC Belgium has acquired a prominent place in the Belgian and global landscape, as the Belgian enterprises’ champion in today’s global economy.
In Belgium as in the more than 100 countries, ICC’s founders acted on their conviction that the private sector is best qualified to set global standards for business, without waiting for governments to fill the gap.
They called themselves “The merchants of peace.”
