Commission on the Digital Economy
The ICC Commission on the Digital Economy seeks to promote the global development of the digital economy and stable growth of information and communication technology (ICT) through private sector policy leadership, regulatory advocacy and the promotion of best practice.
About the commission
The ICC Commission on the Digital Economy draws upon a cross-section of business leaders and experts from 50 ICC member countries. It develops policy positions and practical tools for the Internet and information communications technology (ICTs) on behalf of users, providers and operators of information technology. Its members voice business concerns and needs to governments to help them draft policy, legal and regulatory frameworks that address critical ICT issues, and that better respond to business needs.
How we work
Members of the Commission on the Digital Economy are nominated by ICC national committees who select members from their local membership to serve first on their local committee and then represent the national committee at global Commission on the Digital Economy meetings. These meetings held twice a year in Paris and in another location.
While responding to key policy developments of importance for business activity, Commission members and ICC national committees may propose projects and issues for wider consideration.
The Commission's leadership includes international experts in their field to help ensure the Commission meets its goals and strategy for the wider global business interest.
The ICC Secretariat manages the projects and initiatives driven by the Commission working with members and national committees to ensure the Commission's yearly priorities are met.
The Commission on the Digital Economy informs the following international organizations and entities:
- APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation)
Council of Europe
EU (the European Parliament and Commission of the European Union)
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers)
ITU (International Telecommunication Union)
OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development)
UN agencies and ICT-related activities (post-World Summit on Information Society action lines)
