Welcome to the International Chamber of Commerce Australia (ICC Australia), the Australian arm of the world business organisation.
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) was founded in 1919 with an overarching aim that remains unchanged: to serve world business by promoting trade and investment, open markets for goods and services, and the free flow of capital.
ICC Australia is the Australian branch of the ICC headquartered in Paris, France. ICC Australia was the eleventh national committee to be established back in 1927, making us one of the oldest affiliates of the ICC, so that the powerful voice of the Australian business community could be disseminated internationally. In 2007, the secretariat of ICC Australia returned to the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry after an absence of some 20 years.
The primary aim of ICC Australia is to promote the voice of Australian business in the international arena, connecting the concerns of Australian industy to the greater policy aims of the ICC, ensuring that the needs of Australian businesses are addressed. However, ICC Australia also aims to inform its members of any developments in international commerce, giving them access to the latest news from ICC's global network of over 120 National Committees.
Today ICC Australia continues to be the conduit for the two-way flow of information between Australian business and the global commercial arena.
