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
