ICC International Trade & Prosperity Conference | October 19

Global Value Chains Matter

We are delighted to invite to our flagship event on 19th October - Global Value Chains play a key role in the global economy, creating jobs, sharing prosperity, fostering innovation and attracting investment but are being increasingly challenged by the rise in protectionism, climate change and digitisation. This inaugural ICC event will look at the issues and provide a set of policy recommendations for how global value chains can evolve to meet the challenges.

As the world’s largest business organisation representing 45 million companies from all sectors and company sizes in over 100 countries, as well as the only business organisation with UN Observer Status, we are best placed to influence and inform the discussion regarding policy for global value chains.

Topics included as part of the one day conference include:

  • Challenges and opportunities facing global value chains
  • View from the boardroom – how global value chains can be a solution to delivering the UN 2030 agenda
  • The economics of global value chains - role of SME’s
