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.

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.

Afraid of lengthy arbitration procedures? The Revised ICC Rules of Arbitration in force since 1 March 2017, include new provisions on an expedited procedure for small claims, as well as some general amendments designed to streamline non-expedited cases, and provide greater transparency to the arbitration process.

ICC Switzerland will organize an event on the Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals are defined by 169 targets at global level. The Swiss Government will start the reporting process by defining the Swiss implementation of the targets by a public online consultation in May/June 2017. This process will lead to a revised sustainable development agenda. It is therefore crucial that the business view is reflected in the consultation process.

In September 2015, the member states of the United Nations approved a new global development agenda (Agenda 2030) with a set of Development Goals designed to resolve two of the most critical issues confronting the world community: to eradicate poverty and to promote sustainable development.
