MINIMUM OBLIGATORY CONTRIBUTIONS OF MEMBER STATES

This document classifies Member States of the International Center for Promotion of Enterprises (hereinafter: ICPE or Center) for regular minimum annual contributions for the financing of the Center.

All Member States are classified into five different groups based to the highest extent possible on the scale most recently employed by the United Nations. Per capita gross domestic product and population were also taken into consideration. In addition to these basic criteria, the special circumstances of each country and its economy were also weighted. Fixed assessed contribution is assigned to each group from I – V, by the following scale:

ICPE reserves the right to change the group for member states that considering objective parameters (such as level of public and foreign debt) has weaker/stronger payment power than UN scale shows.

Subject to the financial regulations of the ICPE, the Director-General, on behalf of the  Center, may accept voluntary contributions to the ICPE, including gifts, bequests and subventions, made to the ICPE by governments, intergovernmental or non-governmental organizations or other non-governmental sources, provided that the conditions attached to such voluntary contributions are consistent with the objectives and policies of the ICPE.

Unanimously adopted at the ICPE Council and Assembly session on September 7, 2011.
