Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industries

HISTORY
The chamber movement in the Philippines started on April 19, 1886 when a group of Spanish businessmen formed the Camara de Commercio de Filipinas. Following the revolution that led to the downfall of the colonial Spanish government, patriotic fervor among the country’s business leaders paved the way for the establishment of the Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (CCP) in 1903. Barely half a century after, a group of industrialists founded the Philippine Chamber of Industries (PCI).
On July 1, 1978, the merger of the two chambers gave birth to one strong force in the business community, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI). With the signing of then President Ferdinand E. Marcos on Dec. 7, 1978 of the Letter of Instruction No. 780, the PCCI was recognized as the country’s “single voice of business.”

VISION
PCCI is the voice of Philippine business recognized by government and international institutions. As a proactive catalyst of development, PCCI promotes and supports the drive for globally competitive Philippine enterprises in partnership with government, local chambers, and other business organizations.

Australian-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce (Philippines)

The Australian-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce (Philippines) Inc evolved out of the Australian Business Group (ABG), which was established by the Australian Senior Trade Commissioner at the time, Bill Brigstocke.

The ABG was set up by the Senior Trade Commissioner in 1974 in an effort to provide a common meeting place for Australian business men based in Manila or visiting. In addition, there was the view that in setting up the business group that some day it might grow into something more bilateral such as the American Chamber. The ABG invited speakers to meetings, which gave the businessmen of the day the opportunity to obtain information about what policies were being implemented by the Administration. Of course, many social functions evolved from these early meetings. Arranging the meetings in those early days was made through the Trade Commissioner’s office at the Australian Embassy. The Australian Ambassador at the time was Gerry Nutter and he was supportive of the ABG and its aims.
