Samoa Chamber of Commerce

THE SAMOA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY INCORPORATED IS SAMOA’S NATIONAL PRIVATE SECTOR ORGANISATION

It is an incorporated association of businesses and private sector organisations representing all areas of Samoa’s private sector. The Chamber’s purpose is to act as Samoa’s National Private Sector Organisation and in this capacity, promote the interests, well-being and growth of Samoa’s private sector at the national, regional and international levels to improve the economic and social well-being of the people of Samoa.

Although originally formed in the early 1900s by the Merchants of Apia, the organisation was revived and took its current form in the 1970s. By 2015, The Chamber had grown to include more than 300 members representing a cross sector of Samoa’s business community.

The Chamber’s membership also includes two large private sector organisations (PSOs), namely Women in Business Development Inc(WIBDI) and Samoa For Real. It also includes other smaller PSOs representing micro businesses in the cultural and handicrafts industry. The Chamber’s role as Samoa’s National Private Sector Organisation is supported by these groups.

The Chamber is governed by a 12 member Executive Council, all serving on a voluntary basis. Representatives of WIBDI and Samoa For Real have an allocated seat on the Executive Council. Executive Council Members are elected on an annual basis at Chamber’s Annual General Meeting, held each March. Regular members’ meetings are held on a monthly basis.
