ICC Switzerland Annual Assembly 2019

banner annual assembly

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, welches 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.
