A contingent of business leaders under the banner of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) participated in the annual World Economic Forum in Davos this week to press for continued progress on trade, investment and business priorities for the G20.
Led by ICC Chairman Terry McGraw (who also serves as chairman of USCIB), Vice Chairman Sunil Mittal and Secretary General Jean-Guy Carrier, the group included several CEO members of the ICC G20 Advisory Group as well as members of ICC commissions, the ICC working bodies that develop ICC policy positions and voluntary rules on major issues for international business.
