Every year, the International Chamber of Commerce, through its World Chambers Federation division, recognizes a handful of innovative development projects from around the world for their potential impact on business and human welfare. Winners of the 2009 awards announced this month have one big thing in common: Each project was an effort to improve relationships between countries.
The organizers handed out awards this year in four categories: small business, networking, international, and unconventional, plus a special award of recognition for the best project in a developing country. From simple initiatives establishing health and safety codes for small businesses to big projects revitalizing areas hit by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, chambers around the world are working together.
