The most important feature of IWS membership is access to our national and international networks. These bring together our Senators, directors at SMEs, traditional companies and corporations; cooperative partners at national and international levels and other associations under the auspices of the World Economic Council (WEC).

The IWS holds events in various formats, from intimate group conversations with politicians to round table discussions and business conferences. At international level, the IWS offers its Senators exclusive delegation trips – to the USA, Russia or India, for example. The IWS organises local political and business contacts, presentations, extraordinary company visits and more
