About the CMBD
The Council for Multilateral Business Diplomacy was established in 2007 to help respond to global challenges and opportunities facing the international business community. The program is designed to bring business together with the many institutions and international organizations based in Geneva and elsewhere in Europe that directly affect the commercial and regulatory environment for international business.
Geneva and other capitals of Europe are the meeting places of many of the organizations and people that deliberate over global issues concerning trade, finance, investment, intellectual property rights, health, labor, human rights, and international standards. Increasingly, these deliberations are impacting the way business is able to operate – both globally, where they set the policies for global operations, and nationally, where national governments increasingly apply internationally developed standards for the regulation of their own economies and societies. These are organizations that are having significant immediate and long-term impact on corporate profitability and on risk management and strategic planning.
CMBD Conference Room
The Council for Multilateral Business Diplomacy, based in Geneva, Switzerland, provides companies with important opportunities for engaging with key international decision-makers on global developments and issues of mutual concern. The Council provides its members with timely information, networking opportunities, access to leadership in the international organizations, settings for conveying business views, and insights into the inner workings of international diplomacy. The Council is not an advocacy organization but does help companies track key issues and associated policy formulations as they are debated, processed and implemented through the organizations that address them.
The value of the Council for Multilateral Business Diplomacy is broad. The Council provides an informal, non-adversarial and neutral space for business discussion, networking and, most of all, engagement, with the international organizations that are having an impact on global business operations. The Council also provides opportunities for businesses to engage directly with key officials in the international organizations, and vice versa.
