ICC World Chambers

The International Chamber of Commerce has put forward a set of business recommendations to help leaders of the world's major economies prepare for discussions on the world’s most pressing economic policy challenges at next month's G20 Summit taking place Hangzhou, China.

From climate change and energy to taxation and trade, the recommendations cover seven areas not covered by the 20 principle 2016 policy recommendations developed by the Business -20 (B20), and to which ICC significantly contributed and fully endorses.

“The supplemental ICC recommendations aim to complement B20 work and help drive progress on some of the most intractable economic and social challenges confronting the global economy,” said Jeffrey Hardy, Director of ICC’s CEO G20 Advisory Group.

“As the world business organization, we want to flag some salient areas where G20 leaders can make progress towards sustained and inclusive economic growth.”

Here, we bring you a summary of the full recommendations which have been presented to the senior government officials – known as sherpas – tasked with laying the groundwork for the Summit.
