Egypt: After 6 Years, Egypt Regains ICC Membership

Egypt regained its membership of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in Paris after an interruption of more than six years, during which the Egyptian committee of the ICC stopped its activities at the international level.

In a statement on Tuesday, the World Chambers Federation (WCF), formerly the International Bureau of Chambers of Commerce, said that the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce managed to restore the committee's activity and resolve all pending problems with parties concerned.

President of the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce Ibrahim el-Arabi said that the committee's general assembly, grouping 50 members, is scheduled to convene after Eidul-Adha holiday to elect 21 members of the board of directors.

He further stressed the importance of the Egyptian committee's role as one of the arms of the Egyptian commercial diplomacy in defending the business sector's interests at international gatherings.
