International Chamber of Commerce in Albania

ICC Albania is the ICC’s National Committee (representative office) in Albania. There are 90+ National Committees around the world. ICC refers to the headquarters of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris.

To access ICC activities, Albania based companies have to be a member of ICC Albania. All National Committees operate under a constitutional charter with ICC headquarters. We share the same vision, mission, values and brand and operate a bit like a franchise business.

ICC Policy Commissions are run by the ICC Secretariat in Paris. They bring together representatives of the national policy committees to decide common ICC positions. Meetings of the Commissions are held in different locations in the world each year.

Representatives of ICC Albania member companies are nominated by ICC Albania and these nominations are either confirmed or rejected by ICC in Paris.

12. They are: Arbitration and ADR, Banking, Commercial Law and Practice, Competition, Corporate Responsibility and Anti-Corruption, Customs and Trade Facilitation, Digital Economy, Environment and Energy, Intellectual Property, Marketing and Advertising, Taxation, Trade and Investment Policy.
