List of International Chamber of Commerce in China

by Matt Slater August 31, 2016

International Chamber of Commerce in China

For many businesses, contacting your country’s Chamber of Commerce in China is a great starting point for exploring opportunities in the Chinese market.

The large number of Chamber of Commerce in China means that there is a good chance that your country has representation, and some of the more active countries even have multiple chambers or offices across China.

As well as giving an overview, this article conveniently lists each of the main chambers and provides website and contact details.

What Does a Chamber of Commerce in China Do?

The International Chambers of Commerce in China were typically founded by a group of companies and individuals from the same country for the purpose of sharing knowledge, developing business relationships and gaining representation.

Once established, these non-governmental, not-for-profit organizations typically take on the role of acting as a bridge between China and their nation, helping to facilitate bilateral trade and arranging events.

Most of the Chambers in China have a wealth of local knowledge and a long list of contacts, so seeking their advice before embarking on major projects in China or even when encountering difficulties is always a good idea. Even if they don’t know the answer, they probably know someone who does.

For foreigners living in China, attending events arranged by their Chamber of Commerce can be a good opportunity to make acquaintances and act as a home away from home.

If Your Country Doesn’t Have a Chamber of Commerce in China

Even if your country doesn’t have a Chamber of Commerce in China, there are chambers representing groups of countries, such as AfCham for African countries and the European Chamber for European Union countries.

Many Chambers will also be willing to work with companies from other countries, particularly if they have some link to the country, e.g. a branch office in the country or senior management from the country.
