ICC Seminar on Procurement and Trade

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) recently released a response (http://www.iccwbo.org/advocacy-codes-and-rules/document-centre/2012/icc-response-to-the-european-commission-proposed-regulation-on-public-procurement/) to the European Commission’s proposed regulation on third country access to internal procurement markets (http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2012/march/tradoc_149243.pdf). The ICC Task Force on Public Procurement wishes to raise issues pertaining to the reality and complexities of procurement markets, which it feels the EC and many international organizations should investigate further.

Beyond the EC proposal, our members believe that the future of procurement is an important topic, as well as a growing point of debate amongst experts and across nations. This seminar will handle problems such as impact of European decisions on emerging markets, on the industrial sector and the superimposition of normative frameworks established by international organizations. This event should be an opportunity to explain and discuss our opinions and garner views from the business community.
