We make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere.

Everything we do at ICC aims to promote international trade and investment as vehicles for inclusive growth and prosperity.

From resolving disputes when they arise in international commerce to supporting global efforts to streamline customs and border procedures, we support multilateralism as the best way to address global challenges and reach global goals.

Having witnessed the power of international commerce to lift millions of people out of poverty, today we have our sights set on the future of globalisation, working to promote inclusive and sustainable growth to the benefit of all.

We work to promote international trade, responsible business conduct and a global approach to regulation by combining our global influence with our unique expertise in advocacy, standard setting activities and global services.

In the activities we carry out every day—in our work to support the resolution of commercial disputes, through policy advocacy, in the development of rules and guidelines, in our training courses, and in the delivery of other practical tools and services, we help you adapt to the challenges of trading in today’s fast-paced global economy.
