ICC is the world business organization, a representative body that speaks with authority on behalf of enterprises from all sectors in every part of the world. ICC was founded in Paris in 1919. Today it groups hundreds of thousands of member companies and associations in over 120 countries.
Business experts drawn from the ICC membership establish the business stance on broad issues of trade and investment policy as well as on a wide range of policy subjects of interest to companies worldwide.
National committees convey to their governments the business views formulated by ICC. The United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the G20 and many other intergovernmental bodies are kept informed of international business views through ICC.
