Confederation of International Contractors' Associations (CICA)

  1. Established in 1974 in Tokyo, the Confederation of International Contractors’ Associations (CICA) represents the construction industry at global level. The worldwide construction industry, involving contractors of all sizes, represents a global turnover of about US$ 7 trillion and employs around 120 million people.

    As a non-profit, voluntary and global association of trade associations representing member construction companies from their respective regions, CICA :

  • represents and speaks for the construction industry on technical, legal and political matters of international concern and provides a forum for fellowship, cooperation and interaction with member federations and linked institutions.

  • is also acting as a club for contractors of any size and as a lobby at international level interacting with worldwide public organisations.

  • encourages the exchange of experiences, information and technical knowledge. 

  • promotes investment in engineering and building that enhances both our environment and the quality of life for all. 

  • promotes the global construction industry, by stressing notably its fundamental impact on the economy at local, regional and global levels.

CICA and its member federations, along with their national federations and their companies, are able to assist Governments, international financial institutions (especially Multilateral Development Banks) and other international organisations in order to:

  • contribute to the elaboration and implementation of their infrastructure projects or action plans;

  • collaborate actively in the definition and implementation of the required policies (notably in procurement, infrastructure, anti-corruption and integrity).
