Mittal serves on many international bodies and think-tanks. At present, he is the honorary chairman of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). He is a Member of International Business Council-WEF, Telecom Board of International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and Commissioner of the Broadband Commission.
