IWR – A Strong, Vital Network for SME

The members of the International Economic Association (Internationaler Wirtschaftsrat e.V., IWR) operate in national and international markets. They aim to expand their competencies in doing business abroad or accessing new markets.  As a community the members are supporting each other in achieving objectives by providing their specific expertise where it is needed. Together, they are opening doors  for small and medium sized enterprises to markets abroad.

The members of IWR esteem the socio-economic advantages of the social market economy in contrast to other economic systems. Therefore, they advocate for its protection and further development. An integral part of this self-understanding is IWR’s membership in the United Nations Global Compact. As a community IWR committed itself to the Global Compact’s universal principles of protecting the environment and human rights. IWR expects its members to recognize and implement the universal principles for their business as well.
