Chapter Summary

The international chamber of commerce (ICC) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) which represents the interests of its membership broadly, firms of all sizes from a wide variety of sectors at the national and international levels. The ICC owes its origins to the depredations of the First World War and the determination of leading businessmen in Europe and the US to break the deadlock over the reparations issue that dominated the early post-war years. Membership of the ICC within a national committee is open to both "national and local organisations which are truly representative of the business and professional interests of their members. The central objective of the ICC is "to further the development of an open world economy with the firm conviction that international commercial exchanges are conducive to both greater global prosperity and peace among nations".

Keywords: international chamber of commerce (ICC); international commercial exchanges; open world economy
