Partnering with other International Organizations

Partnering with other International Organizations

The MCCI has over the years established close working relationships with international development agencies, with foreign academic institutions and Dispute Resolution Centres in several countries. Collaborating with these institutions allow to share best-practices, exchange insights, develop networks, address the latest business issues affecting the business communities, and learn about new areas of innovation.

Trade Promotion

The MCCI has been collaborating with International Trade Centre (ITC) since 1988 and conducted a number of activities in collaboration with the International Trade Centre, a joint WTO/UN agency. ITC's mission is to foster sustainable economic development and contribute to achieving the Millennium Development Goals in developing countries and transition economies through trade and international business development. 

Areas of collaboration with ITC include the following: Setting up of a Trade Obstacle Alert Mechanism, Implementation of a National Export Strategy, Organisation of Business meets and the Organization of training programme with regards to International Contracts and Transactions.

Arbitration

The collaboration which exists between the Mediation and Arbitration Centre of the MCCI (MARC) and the above-named organizations has yielded valuable and best practice exchanges. It is expected that MARC will develop into a prime national and international center for the resolution of business disputes through ADR techniques such as arbitration and mediation.
