GFCC Membership

The GFCC provides its members with exclusive access to a network of global leaders, international competitiveness organizations, renowned corporations and research institutes by providing a platform for connections through global events and internal initiatives that are exclusively available to members. ​


Members of the GFCC engage with each other regularly, exchanging ideas, addressing challenges related to innovation and competitiveness, and comparing best practices. The GFCC not only facilitates this, but also rationalizes and filters this information. Thus, we provide research for our members through annual reports that prove valuable for their future endeavors and competitiveness strategies, be they national or international.
