Trade & Investment Commission:

    About the Commission

    ICC works to champion evidence-based policies to shape the multilateral trade and investment agenda as a driver of growth, jobs and development. We are the leading business voice in the World Trade Organization and other international forums – including the G20.

    Global trade is an important driver of economic growth

    The changing nature of world trade, however, poses challenges to global trade governance. The rise of global value chains and increased foreign direct investment flows, among others, have made global trade governance more complex. Recent months have also seen a growing backlash against global trade integration and rising protectionism in many economies.
