On October 8, 2009, USCIB members and friends commemorated the 90th anniversary of the International Chamber of Commerce, as part of a worldwide series of events throughout 2009 marking this important milestone for the world business organization, which is USCIB’s oldest overseas affiliate.

ICC was represented by Chairman Victor Fung (Chairman, Li & Fung Group) and members of ICC’s Executive Board.  An exciting dinner program included keynote remarks by U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, and featured speaker Christiane Amanpour, senior international correspondent with CNN.

ICC’s anniversary was also marked with a lunch at the United Nations and a two-day workshop at Harvard Business School on the future of market capitalism.  For more information, please visit

The gala also marked the 40th anniversary of the ATA Carnet system for temporary exports in the United States.  Developed by ICC in cooperation with the World Customs Organization, ATA Carnets are an invaluable tool for exporters and others doing business abroad.
