- ICC Brasil was created in 2014 with the mission of bringing the private sector to the center of the international trade agenda and expanding the voice of the Brazilian business community with governments and international bodies by elaborating projects aimed at economic, social development and improvement of the business environment. To do so, we started from a multi-sector vision, which is already shown by the diversity of our approximately 200 members, including companies, banks and law firms.
- We are a non-partisan institution, which has a concrete engagement from its members and works with international trade, as well as its entire orbit and ecosystem. We disseminate locally the content developed by global ICC in its 12 areas of operation, we organize events on topics of relevance to the country’s economy, we give a voice to companies located in Brazil on a global scale and we also transmit to relevant government authorities the positions of the ICC on key-issues to international business. We are one of the only private sector organizations with a global observer seat in the UN.
- We produce knowledge through advocacy projects and initiatives, seeking to bring the country’s private sector closer to government agencies and global debates in multilateral organizations (such as the UN, WTO and G20), providing subsidies for the development of public policies that are beneficial to Brazil. For this, we have the work of more than 500 executives, who participate in 9 thematic commissions of interest to the Brazilian private sector, especially for the benefit of the international trade.
