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.

Nein zur kontraproduktiven Selbstbestimmungsinitiative

ICC Switzerland ist entschieden gegen die Selbstbestimmungsinitiative. Sie ist kontraproduktiv für alle Unternehmen, welche aus der Schweiz international aktiv sind und entscheidend zum Wohlstand unseres Landes beitragen. Es ist wichtig, dass am 25. November ein wuchtiges NEIN zur SBI in die Urnen gelegt wird.


Bekanntlich verdienen wir Schweizerinnen und Schweizer unseren Wohlstand auch im Ausland, und zwar nicht nur durch Exporte, sondern auch durch Investitionen. ICC Switzerland bildet als Schweizer Nationalkomitee der Internationalen Handelskammer (ICC) die Brücke für unsere Unternehmen zur globalen Wirtschaft. ICC ist in über 90 Ländern vertreten und tritt seit 100 Jahren für gute internationale Rahmenbedingungen zu Gunsten aller ein.


Gerade im Investitionsschutz sind Vertrauen, Verlässlichkeit und transparente, berechenbare Rahmenbedingungen von grosser Bedeutung. Der Investitionsschutz steht jedoch unter Druck. Die Selbstbestimmungsinitiative bringt zusätzlich Unsicherheit. Die Schweiz kann von Partnerländern nicht erwarten, dass sie einen Investitionsschutz nach internationalen Regeln akzeptieren, wenn sie gleichzeitig signalisiert, dass sie dem nationalen Recht stets den (fast) bedingungslosen Vorrang einräumt. Dieser negative Effekt tritt bereits weit vor einer allfälligen Kündigung eines Abkommens ein. Das Fundament für den Handel und den Schutz von Investitionen wird damit durch Treibsand ersetzt.
