The challenges presented by the global economy will drive revolutionary business and research developments on a great scale. Specific future ICIC objectives include


The ICIC will provide numerous settings that link diverse groups before, during and after the conference.  The ICIC network provides a firm foundation for effective international cooperation and an enriching environment for the development of new joint business enterprises.

Throughout history, business, educational, and cultural exchanges have helped create enduring bonds and relationships to build bridges of understanding between organizations and peoples. The ICIC will produce partnerships to build a better world and turn risk into opportunity.
