Welcome to BASIS

Launched in 2006 after the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) at the request of companies that saw the importance of global business coordination on Internet governance and ICT policy issues, ICC’s Business Action to Support the Information Society (BASIS) initiative is a hub of multinational enterprises, SMEs and associations from around the world and across sectors that work actively and collectively to foster business engagement in the post-WSIS follow up activities.

ICC created BASIS to address the need for the private sector to be represented and engaged actively in the global dialogue on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) serve as engines of economic growth and social development and what is needed to encourage business investment that fosters this growth.

  • collaborate: build relationships with stakeholders and with companies and associations from across sectors and geographies;
