As the world counts the cost of terrorism, your business has a role to play in ensuring a safe, stable, prosperous future.

Between the controversy around President Trump’s recent immigration ban in the US, the latest attacks in Paris, Quebec and Jerusalem, and last week’s foiled terror plot in Sydney, it seems as though terrorism is rarely out of the headlines at the moment.
 
While the human cost of terrorism is undeniable, the impact it has on long-term economic development is also becoming increasingly clear. Businesses can play a leadership role in building and strengthening local, regional and global peace and stability processes through trade, investment, wealth creation, good governance and corporate responsibility.
 
“Business, conflict and terrorism: rebuilding peace and prosperity” will be one of the topics under discussion at the 10th World Chambers Congress, to be held from 19-21 September 2017 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
 
Held every two years, the Congress will see chamber, business and government leaders from more than 100 countries gather to discuss the issues facing the international business community.
 
Hosted by Sydney Business Chamber, a division of NSW Business Chamber, in conjunction with the International Chamber of Commerce and World Chambers Federation, the three-day event will cover topics including the internationalisation of SMEs; corporate social responsibility, and international trade agreements.
 
The event offers a unique opportunity to develop professional networks, exchange insights and best-practices, establish institutional ties and promote trade and investment opportunities.
