Chamber of Commerce International History
Source: International Chamber of Commerce website

The long history of the Chamber movement can be traced back to 1599 when the term “Chamber of Commerce” appeared first in Marseille, France.

Moving beyond individual interest to that of a collective group, the establishment of Chambers provided merchants, traders, craftsmen and industrialists a public forum to discuss issues facing them, as a business community. This representation of common interest became and remains the foundation of Chambers of Commerce worldwide.

Today, Chambers of Commerce exists in almost every country of the world and is as diverse in name as the business communities they represent. No longer are Chambers of “commerce” and “industry”, chambers also describe themselves as representing “manufacturers”, “Entrepreneurship”, “Training”, “shipping”, “commodity exchanges”, “agriculture”, etc. to help reflect the communities they serve.
