Mission Statement

The International Trade Council is the public voice of domestic and international trade related organisations.

The Council supports industry and policymakers to build sustainable trade relationships of the highest quality through vision, leadership, collaboration, professional development, and research.

The International Trade Council is an independent, nonpartisan membership organisation, think-tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world of domestic and international trade.

It is the ITC’s mission to encourage the highest quality research through support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields related to trade and trade finance.

The Council is ‘investigator-driven’ and ‘bottom-up’ in nature, allowing members and associated bodies to identify new opportunities and directions in any field of research, rather than being led by priorities set by policy-makers and politicians. This ensures that research is evolving, with a greater deal of flexibility.

Core values guide the day to day actions of the Council. Our culture is underpinned by:

  • Strategic decision making
  • Working together in a multi-disciplined team
  • A focus on meeting the needs of the public
  • Stable relationships between members, staff and policy-makers
  • Sustainable development
  • A genuine desire to contribute to the global community

(Coronavirus Pandemic)

Notice Date: 30th March 2020

The health and safety of our staff and contractors are of paramount importance. As such all ITC staff have been advised to work from home for the next 30 days and avoid all non-essential travel. This may reduce accessibility of staff via phone but, pending individual internet issues, most trade commissioners should be accessible via email.

The Council’s IT infrastructure systems are redundant and we use tried and tested collaborative tools that allow full remote working for all staff and contractors. As we use an IP-based phone system, all of our contact details will remain the same.

All webinars, conferences and trade missions are temporarily paused pending the end of the 30 day home quarantine period. The Trade Mission to Malta, Trade Mission to Estonia and Trade Mission to Finland are being re-scheduled for August 2020. Pending any major changes in the current Pandemic situation, Trade Commissioners should update attendees within the next 45 days.

All accounting functions and non-trade-related functions are temporarily paused for the 30 day home quarantine period.

The Council recommends all businesses follow the WHO guidelines which give some useful practical advice for workplaces.

Please stay at home if possible and stay safe!
