Project Description

In 1919, in the aftermath of World War I, the world desperately needed to rebuild economies and societies at a time when there was no global system of rules to govern trade, investment, finance or commercial relations.

A handful of entrepreneurs decided to create an organisation to promote peace and represent business everywhere. This group of industrialists, financiers and traders founded the International Chamber of Commerce.

They called themselves “The merchants of peace.”
