ICC granted UN Observer Status

Posted on: 16/01/2017

As members of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Strong & Herd are pleased to say they have been officially granted Observer Status by the United Nations’ General Assembly.  This is an historic achievement for ICC and one which provides a unique platform for the world business organisation to represent our members in the world’s greatest international forum. ICC is the only private-sector organisation to have been granted Observer Status at the General Assembly in the history of the United Nations. 

ICC’s new status could not have come at a more important time. Obtaining Observer Status will—for the first time—provide a direct voice for business in the UN system to promote policies that foster sustainable and inclusive growth, job creation, and economic cooperation.
