This online webinar for the ICC Central Asia Initiative will show the mission of ICC’s involvement in the recovery of the Central Asia region.

As part of International Chamber of Commerce’s (ICC) mission to make business work for everyone, every day and everywhere, ICC is expanding the global institution’s reach and impact in sub-regions of the world in support of efforts to help rebuild a post-pandemic economic system that is stronger, more resilient, and more equitable.

The webinar aims to provide general overview of ICC’s Central Asia initiative mission and how ICC is facilitating the deployment of its range of tools to promote business and facilitate trade, in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan. This in order to pave the way for a viable ICC presence across the region over time.
