Who we are

The Global Chamber Platform (GCP) brings together the major national and trans-national Chamber organisations from the four corners of the globe and develops joint initiatives to facilitate economic cooperation and to promote free trade initiatives.

It is coordinated by EUROCHAMBRES, the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

As of today, GCP members include, in addition to EUROCHAMBRES, 16 business organisations from a wide range of countries and regions: United States; China; India; Iran; Russia; Latin American, Mediterranean and African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, just to name a few.

In the GCP, Chambers from countries are represented either directly (as in the case of large countries like China, India, Iran and Russia) or by their umbrella organisations.

In total, the GCP indirectly represents companies from more than 180 countries.


Global problems require global solutions. In times where economic cooperation and sustainable long-term growth models are critically needed, we - as Global Chamber Platform – aim to bring global perspectives and innovative ideas from the real economy to the international political scene.
