ICC Iraq launch expands ICC global network

  • 10 July 2024

ICC has expanded its presence in Iraq with the official launch of ICC Iraq at ICC’s Global Headquarters in Paris today. Reflecting ICC’s global reach, the new ICC national committee will promote ICC’s mission in Iraq, boosting the voice of Iraqi business and chambers worldwide.

The addition of ICC Iraq brings the current number of ICC national committees to 92.

An ICC Iraq delegation joined ICC leaders and staff at ICC’s Global Headquarters for an event marking the official launch, which was followed by a celebration at the Iraqi Embassy in Paris.

“The context in which businesses operate today is marked by geo-economic and geo-political tensions giving rise to instability, uncertainty and new challenges in Iraq and beyond. Bringing our mission to Iraq will deliver real value for Iraqi business and the real economies in which they operate.”

ICC Secretary General John W.H Denton AO.

ICC Iraq will support ICC’s institutional objectives for business to foster peace, prosperity, and opportunity for all through local commissions on arbitration and ADR, digital economy, intellectual property, and trade and investment.

ICC Iraq’s founding members are Abdulrazaq Al-Zuheere, who serves as ICC Iraq Honorary Chair and President of the Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce (FICC), Mohsin Al Hamed, Chair of ICC Iraq and Al-Asriya Group and Ahmed Alyasiri, ICC Iraq Secretary General and International Organisation Consultant at FICC.

Through the national committee in their respective country, ICC members help shape ICC policies and alert governments to international business concerns.
