On 11 November, the UN's Sixth Committee adopted by consensus a resolution to grant ICC Observer Status at the UN General Assembly. Thanks to the tremendous support from our national committees, chambers, and greater global network, ICC now has a direct and independent voice in the world's greatest international forum. ICC is the only business organization in the world with the ability to offer this service to member corporations. This provides a major "value add" for our national committees, chamber, and their members. ICC will have a unique platform to advocate and promote the policy priorities of the private sector on important issues of trade, general commercial standards, rules and regulations, sustainable development, migration, and other matters relevant to our members.
