Sir Simon Fraser

We are pleased to announce that Flint’s Managing Partner, Sir Simon Fraser, has been appointed to the UK board of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) along with Baroness Gabrielle Bertin, Vindi Banga and Harry Matovu.

Announcing these appointments, the ICC said they demonstrate their appetite to shape the trade agenda as a lead organisation on international trade.

Internationally, ICC represents 45 million companies of all sizes and sectors, employing 1 billion people in over 100 countries. In the UK, ICC represents some of the largest and most successful international companies operating in more than 170 overseas markets.

This year, ICC and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Trade and Export Promotion, for which it provides the secretariat, will play a vital role in promoting inclusive, sustainable and green trade. The APPG will be gathering expert evidence on trade from business, trade unions, consumers, civil society NGOs and academia.

Sir Simon said “I am delighted to be joining the ICC. As we move on from the pandemic, promoting sustainable trade in both established and fast growing international markets is a top priority for government and businesses – and one from which everyone will benefit.”
