The Role of the International Chamber of Commerce
The International Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1919. Its goal is to serve world business by promoting trade and investment, open markets for goods and services, and the free flow of capital. The ICC is a force for economic growth, job creation and prosperity. The ICC is the world's only truly global business organization. The ICC covers a broad range of business issues. For example, it lobbies for open trade, business self-regulation, and fighting corruption and commercial crimes. The ICC speaks for world businesses when governments consider issues as intellectual property rights, trade regulations, and environmental protection legislation. The ICC also develops rules and standards that companies can adopt voluntarily, and that can be incorporated in binding contracts.
