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.

Bringing Together Chambers of Commerce in Switzerland

Banner Chambers Day

Marked by its openness to the world, the economic fabric of Geneva and Switzerland is enriched by the presence of numerous bi-national and regional Chambers of Commerce, each of which has valuable expertise in its respective markets.

With a view to bringing the Chambers together, the CCIG, in conjunction with the French, Italian, British and Chinese Chambers of Commerce operating in Switzerland, is organising a major event the "Chambers' Day". ICC Switzerland is proud to see different chambers of commerce coming together and have an active exchange with one another. ICC Switzerland will also be present at the "Village of Chambers".

Its purpose will be to promote the activities of the Chambers of Commerce, as well as to enable the 300 expected participants to exchange ideas within the framework of the "Village of Chambers".  The place of Swiss business in its diversity and the richness of its trade will also be honoured.

Annual Assembly 2019

At our annual assembly we had a look on activities of ICC in General and a look ahead. A hundered years ago the International Chamber of Commerce has been created at the end of the First World War with the objective „Peace and Prosperity through Trade and Investment“. We took the Centenary Celebrations of the International Chamber of Commerce as an opportunity to discuss the contributions business can bring to humanitarian challenges in conflicts and disaster. Yves Daccord, Director-General of the International Committee of the Red Cross gave a very interesting and forwardlooking speech to this topic.

We are pleased to invite you, on behalf of our Chairman Thomas Wellauer, to our Annual Assembly 2019.


We take the Centenary Celebrations of the International Chamber of Commerce as an opportunity to discuss the contributions business can bring to humanitarian challenges in conflicts and disasters. In fact, the International Chamber of Commerce has been created at the end of the First World War with the objective „Peace and Prosperity through Trade and Investment“. What does this objective mean today?


Our guest of honour, Mr Yves Daccord, will focus on this cooperation and give us his view on the latest developments. The following discussion with the audience will further explore the business dilemmas and possible contributions in such challenging situations.

Rahmenabkommen: der Bundesrat solllte die Bremse lösen

 Unser Chairman Thomas Wellauer hat einen Gastkommentar zum Rahmenabkommen verfasst, welcher heute in der NZZ erschienen ist.


Aus der Sicht kleinerer und grösserer Unternehmen ist das Rahmenabkommen förderlich, da es Rechtssicherheit schafft und weiterhin einen guten Zugang zu einem ihrer wichtigsten Absatzmärkte, die EU, garantiert. Deshalb steht ICC Switzerland dafür ein, dass der Bundesrat das Rahmenabkommen unterzeichnet, so dass die aufgeworfenen Fragen in der Konsultation mit der EU geklärt werden können und der innenpolitische Prozess weitergeführt werden kann. Dieser beinhaltet immer noch die parlamentarische Prüfung und Beratung als auch eine Volksabstimmung, wobei dieser Prozess erst mit der  Unterzeichnung des Bundesrates weitergeführt werden kann.

Showcase Member Action at the United Nations

ICC Headquarters is reaching out to seek your support for an exciting ICC initiative ahead of this year’s United Nations’ High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) – the UN’s central platform to review implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
