covid19COVID-19 web portal

ICC has launched a COVID-19 web portal, providing trusted and up-to-date information for businesses, policymakers and chambers of commerce worldwide.

The new site has been developed in line with ICC commitments to the World Health Organization (WHO) to facilitate information flows by disseminating the latest and most reliable information on the COVID-19 outbreak to businesses.

A joint ICC/WHO statement issued last month announced plans to leverage ICC’s global network of over 45 million businesses to enable businesses worldwide to play a full and active role in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

As a trusted private sector partner, ICC is working closely with business, government and other stakeholders to ensure that the latest, most reliable information and tailored guidance reaches the global business community to help protect lives and livelihoods.

The new knowledge-sharing website contains vetted advice for businesses, policymakers and chambers on how to overcome the unfolding global health and societal emergency presented by COVID-19. It serves as a one-stop-shop for users featuring practical policy recommendations, resources for businesses to understand, prepare for and respond to the unprecedented disruption, and actions undertaken by chambers of commerce in response to COVID-19.

The International Chamber of Commerce has published a full statistical report, offering an in-depth breakdown of the numbers behind the growth of its dispute resolution services for the year 2019. 

The annual report provides an overview of the cases administered by the organisation's International Court of Arbitration and International Centre for ADR.

Discover what the 2019 figures reveal and the record numbers announced. 

 

Here is a glimpse of what is highlighted:

  • parties involved, including the numbers, nationalities and state parties
  • arbitral tribunals, including their constitution, the numbers and nationalities of arbitrators appointed and confirmed and the number of incidents affecting the composition of arbitral tribunals during the proceedings

Today, the Swiss Parliament has unanimously decided to change the Federal Law as to from now on permission is given to hand in briefs to the federal court also in English. This is a crucial decision for Switzerland as an essential international place of arbitration. Therefore, this change in law is very much in accordance with ICC Switzerland, as its Swiss Commission of Arbitration has substantially contributed towards reaching this outcome. This change in law strengthens the competitiveness of Switzerland as a preferred place of international arbitration.

"The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) was founded in 1919 – in the wake of the First World War and at the height of the Spanish flu pandemic – on a core conviction that commerce could be an enabler of global peace and prosperity. It is hard not to think we will soon face an equally important inflexion point in history. 

Choices made in the initial years after the ICC’s establishment led to further lives lost and even deeper economic damage. Just more than a century on, governments must not ignore the four fundamental fragilities that could give rise to future chaos: nature loss, climate change, social inequality and economic exclusion. When the time comes, you can be sure that global business will be quick to make the case for a resilient rebuild from Covid-19."
