Giving Business a Seat at the Table
Success in today's global marketplace is often a struggle of great ideas against stiff competition, regulation and red tape. It's no secret that some of the toughest of these road-blocks can be found overseas.
Leading American companies increasingly recognize that, to succeed abroad, they must join together with like-minded firms to influence laws, rules and policies that may undermine U.S. competitiveness, wherever they may be.
The United States Council for International Business helps companies do just that. It gives business a seat at the table, presenting American business ideas, values and solutions
on a wide range of issues – from environment to e-commerce to labor relations – directly to U.S. policy makers and officials in the United Nations, European Union and a host of other governments and groups.
Originally founded in 1945 to promote free trade and help represent business in the newly-formed United Nations, USCIB has built an unparalleled global network of industry affiliations and a reputation for reliable policy advice. This enables our members to bring their collective views to bear on regulatory issues and business practices around the world.
By helping shape international regulation and expand market access for U.S. products and services, USCIB members can lower the costs of doing business abroad and enhance their long-term profitability.
Moreover, USCIB works on a variety of fronts to smooth the way for American commerce abroad, promoting practical business services such as international commercial arbitration to resolve disputes swiftly and the ATA Carnet for temporary duty-free imports of many goods.
In short, when an issue, conflict or opportunity arises, USCIB members know which doors to knock on to safeguard their interests and ensure a more open, free and fair international marketplace.
We hope you will add your voice to ours, and thereby help guarantee American business leadership – and your own success – today and in the future.
