ICC examines the nature and significance of the major shifts taking place in the world economy. From banking and finance to innovation and intellectual property issues, policy advocacy is a major part of ICC’s work. But everything else we do is also devoted to promoting international trade and investment. Much of our work is of a very practical nature, focused on making it easier for business to operate internationally. Drawing on the expertise and experience of our worldwide membership, we offer a large array of voluntary rules, guidelines, and codes which facilitate cross-border transactions and help spread best practice among companies. These activities make us an influential and respected channel for supplying business leadership to help governments manage global developments in a collaborative manner for the benefit of the world economy as a whole.

Project Description

  • Indian Customs and brands join forces to fight fakes

    Protection by Indian Customs is becoming one of the most effective tools for brand owners to safeguard their consumers from fakes. A further enhancement of public-private cooperation to crack down on the trade in counterfeiting is required.

  • 5 ways to shape our digital future

    ICT has been recognised as an underpinning tool to facilitate achievement of the UN SDGs. Yet there is also recognition of the need to equip populations with the necessary digital skills, including literacy, technical and soft skills to meaningfully use and reap the benefits of digital technology.

  • Cybersecurity capacity starts with partnerships

    ICC helps raising awareness of the value of on-going partnerships in cybersecurity capacity building efforts globally.

Digital growth

From micro-enterprises to multinational conglomerates, businesses in every sector and every region of the world are becoming increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies (ICTs) and a secure, stable and trusted Internet to carry out their daily operations.

Global governance

Over the past two decades, the role of business in global governance has become increasingly important. ICC works to inform international policy debates in intergovernmental institutions – ensuring that global policy frameworks work with business to drive growth and economic development.
