ICC International Trade and Prosperity Week

18-22 Oct 2021

Online English

ICC International Trade and Prosperity Week takes place from 18th – 22nd October 2021 and this year's theme is Resetting the Global Economy. By focussing on practical global case studies and initiatives, we will share international best practices with the aim of providing a set of practical policy takeaways that will be promoted widely and fed into our policy forums at the UN, WTO and G20.

The world's economy is at a critical juncture. We must ensure continued policy support is given to help reset the global economy. Now more than ever, we need greater collaboration and co-ordination across global institutions, governments, policy makers and business to help minimise disruption and utilise this challenging time to rebuild a more inclusive, sustainable and greener economy.

ICC ITPW 2021 specifically addresses "how" companies, organisations and governments are implementing solutions that deliver more inclusive, sustainable and greener outcomes to build back better.

Who will be attending?

The week consists of a series of highly interactive webinars with an international audience that truly represents the various stakeholders that are involved in global value chains to help promote awareness, dialogue, trust, and inclusion.

The webinar series will be relevant for the following people;

  • Global tier 1/2 corporates
  • Tier 2/3 supply chain companies
  • Governments – G20, G7
  • International institutions – WTO, OECD, G20, WB, UN, Commonwealth
  • NGOs – Trade Justice Movement
