Think Tanks Network

About the International Network of Business Think Tanks

The International Network of Business Think Tanks is comprised of prominent businessmen brought together by the common goal of defending market freedom and promoting entrepreneurial spirit. We believe these values are a cornerstone of economic and social progress, and benefit workers, investors, suppliers, consumers as well as the general common good. The network is composed of 12 think tanks, which operate in more than 30 countries.

Every year, the International Network of Business Think Tanks organizes a major event. Last year,
the Summit was held by the Business Council of Latin America (CEAL) in Brasilia. The theme was
“Enterprise and Entrepreneurs in the Americas in 2022″. In 2010, the Summit took place in New-
York City, under the leadership of the Committee for Economic Development (CED).
