ICC Digital Finance Committee

The Digital Economy Committee works to ensure that digital development can be utilized optimally by the business community and can facilitate international business operations. The development of the digital economy is one of the central issues for international business and one of the most important priorities for ICC globally as well as for ICC Sweden. Priority is given to the possibility of using and moving data.

Digitizing production together with data usage is challenging for companies and legislators. They raise new challenges and opportunities for world trade. In order to fully exploit the potential of digital development, companies must be able to move data, both within and outside the company, also across national borders.

International data transfer is thus becoming increasingly important for companies, while personal integrity is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain. The regulatory framework for digital data transfer is crucial for maintaining international business.

Among other things, ICC in Sweden is working to disseminate information on the importance of global data flows through seminars, among other things. The members of the Swedish Committee act to influence decision-makers and to stimulate interest in the topic of other actors within and outside the ICC. The Swedish Committee works on both technical issues in data and information technology, as well as the importance of development for business and commerce.

The ICC’s International Commission on Digital Economy consists of business leaders and experts from 50 of the ICC’s member countries. The Commission is actively involved in the development and formulates ICC’s international policies for international business and trade. The positions are developed in consultation with members of the national committees.


In 2016, the Commission for Digital Economy developed a central policy on the importance of data flows. In 2017, basic guidelines will be developed for how information and communication technology can be used for sustainable development. The guidelines will highlight how information and communication technology is used to strengthen economies and raise the standard of living of the population, especially within the framework of the global goals.
