Apr. 07 /CSRwire/ - WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States Chamber of Commerce's Center for Corporate Citizenship (CCC) will host a conference on corporate citizenship in the global economy. Participants, including government officials, business leaders and policy experts, will discuss how to improve business and society relations in the context of the global economy.

"Making a difference on important social issues, helping developing countries grow and building better relationships in regions like Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim are part of what international corporate citizenship is all about." said Stephen Jordan, executive director of CCC. "They're also very important goals for the U.S. government and we intend to bring together leaders from both the public and private sectors to explore ways to work more effectively together on these issues that they have in common."

The conference will feature speakers from the U.S. State Department, Millennium Challenge Corporation, Harvard University, the Council on Foreign Relations, Abbott Laboratories, ChevronTexaco, the Coca Cola Company, DaimlerChrysler, IBM, KPMG Foundation, McDonald's, and other leading agencies, companies and organizations.

CCC's Partnership Conference is an annual event. Each year this conference focuses on a particular social issue about which companies are concerned and brings together business, government, and nonprofit partners to promote and improve the effectiveness of public-private partnerships. The 2005 Partnership Conference: Corporate Citizenship and the Global Economy
will examine how companies are responding to global issues through public-private partnerships, philanthropy, communications, and other contributions to development theory and practice.
