Policy Action

At root, the COVID-19 pandemic is a global problem requiring global solutions. All policy levers must be used to combat both the health crisis and the huge strains it is placing on the global economy.

ICC’s priorities are to ensure that governments take effective action to protect health-supporting small businesses and keeping the global economy ticking. Supply chains – both for essential medical equipment and for regular goods and services – must not be allowed to fail. And governments, international organisations and businesses must join forces and cooperate effectively both to handle the crisis and rebuild the economy for the long-term.

ICC has been engaging with G20 leaders and ministers and is working closely with key international bodies – including the UN, WHO, IMF and ITUC – to encourage coordinated and effective global action.
