covid19COVID-19 web portal

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.

As a trusted private sector partner, ICC is working closely with business, government and other stakeholders to ensure that the latest, most reliable information and tailored guidance reaches the global business community to help protect lives and livelihoods.

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.

As part of the ongoing ICC-WTO Small Business Champions initiative, the Institute of Export & International Trade has launched the «Open to Export International Business Awards» – an exciting opportunity for any small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to win US$ 5,000 cash towards their business plans and gain a range of practical information and advice on exporting.

 

To participate, here’s what the SMEs need to do:

  • Go to «Open to Export»
  • Complete an Export Action Plan by 10 August 2018
  • 10 SME finalists will then be invited to pitch to an international panel of expert judges at the WTO Public Forum in October in Geneva, Switzerland. One winner will be granted the cash prize.
