- The 20th Congress of the International Chamber of Commerce meets in New Delhi on the 8th February 1965, to discuss ‘World Progress Through Partnership’. The Congress is held every two years and is a meeting ground for representatives of the leading industrial, commercial and financial enterprises of the world. The last Congress was held in Mexico in the year 1963.
- The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) was established in 1919 with the task of representing and promoting private enterprise throughout the world with the basic aim of increasing world trade. The ICC has long established working relationships with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and other inter-governmental organisations such as, GATT, OECD, the World Bank, the IMF, the Customs Co-operation Council etc. Another important role that the ICC seeks to fulfil is in the removal of those differences in business practices which can be an obstacle to trade. One of the main achievements of the ICC is the 22-point trade expansion programme submitted in 1963.
