The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) opens its first branch in Afghanistan

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) opened its first-ever branch in Kabul, Afghanistan. ICC spokesperson Qadir Behman said the request of Afghan entrepreneurs for the establishment of ICC branch in Kabul was approved at the global conference in Brazil. 
The opening of the ICC branch would help encourage investment in the country, said Behman. “The office will be functional within the next two weeks and it will focus on foreign commerce and encourage investment in the country to help boost Afghan exports,” said Behman.
Headquartered in Paris, the ICC is the largest and the most diverse business organization in the world. The ICC has hundreds of thousands of member companies that represent more than 130 countries and a broad bouquet of business interests. The ICC encompasses a vast network of committees and experts within all industries in order to keep members fully informed on all issues that could affect them, and maintains contacts within the United Nations, the World Trade Organization and other intergovernmental agencies.
By opening the branch of ICC in Kabul, cooperation of Afghanistan’s private sector will be extended with other members of this organization and results in strengthening Afghanistan’s trade relations with the other nations of the world.
