Call to Action to Save Our SMEs

ICC has launched a call for urgent and decisive action to Save Our SMEs and combat the economic repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an initial “SOS” call to Save Our SMEs, ICC has issued recommendations to governments to:

  • Provide direct and immediate support to small businesses to ensure their continued operation
  • Provide direct and immediate support to workers and those most vulnerable—both at home and abroad
  • Ensure support reaches MSMEs and their workers quickly
  • Adapt existing government-led social programmes
  • Ensure open trade and the expedited flow of essential goods across borders
  • Implement formal and informal channels for dialogue between government, employers, workers and communities.
