Cyprus Chamber of Commerce
The Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a private corporate body functioning under special law and is financially independent, free of any influence by the state. The Chamber is funded by its members’ subscription fees and through income generated from a number of services it provides.

The CCCI is the union of Cypriot businessmen, the interests of whom it promotes by submitting to the government and the Parliament the members’ positions on matters in which they are involved, while, through its participation in tripartite bodies and committees, it conveys and promotes the views of the business community.

The Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry was founded in 1927 and in 1963, a new structure was adopted, which remains in operation to date, under the name of: “Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry”. The CCCI is the federation of the local Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CCIs) which operate in Nicosia, Limassol, Famagusta, Larnaca and Paphos. The local CCIs have a geographical coverage of their respective districts. The Nicosia CCI covers also the districts of Kyrenia and Morphou.

The membership of the CCCI exceeds 8,000 enterprises from the whole spectrum of business activity. Affiliated to it are more than 140 Professional Associations from the trade, industry and services sectors.

The Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry
The Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry was established in its present form in 1962 and represented the first concerted effort of the Limassol business community to have one organisation to defend its interests and promote the economic development of the Limassol district.

From its very inception the Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry has played a leading role in the economic life of Limassol, either by operating as a pressure group towards the realisation of vitally important economic projects or by developing concrete initiatives of its own in that direction.

Starting as far back as the early 1960s, the Chamber has played an instrumental role in the pursuit of projects fundamentally important for the economic and social development of Limassol. Not least of these were the Limassol Industrial Estates, the Limassol port -- Cyprus's leading port past the Turkish invasion of 1974 -- and the Kourris dam, which is to this day the largest of its kind in Cyprus.

It was also the Limassol Chamber that conceived and implemented, again in the early 1960s, the idea of the Wine Festival, which has come to be associated with the modern history of Limassol as an event of commercial, tourist and cultural interest.

Over the years the Limassol Chamber has continued to be at the forefront of initiatives aiming to achieve optimum economic development for Limassol. In that context it has expressed keen and active interest, among others, in road projects, the University of Technology, the Techno Park as well as in a series of tourist infrastructure projects, as the marina, conference centre and others.
