The Ceylon Chamber of Chamber of Commerce has been supporting trade for over 179 years. Like all Chambers of Commerce, we have extensive international networks and work with businesses of all sizes. We work closely with our foreign counterparts all over the world through the links established by entering into co-operation partnership agreements (Memoranda of Understanding – MOUs) with over 125 Chambers of Commerce and Business Promotion Organisations.

 

The main objective of strengthening these linkages is to increase the range of practical, business to business support on the ground where businesses need support in high growth and emerging markets.

 

For Chamber members, who are looking internationally, the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce can assist them by linking them with appropriate contacts through the Chamber network in the jurisdictions of their choice to help them locate suitable business partners to expand their businesses overseas.

 

 

 

Our MOU partners:

Business Councils are an integral part of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) and play a vital role in the promotion of international business. The main activity of the Councils is the expansion of trade, investment and tourism between Sri Lanka and the partner country/countries.

 

As at date, the CCC operates 19 Business Councils.  The CCC facilitates and co-ordinates the activities of the Councils by providing professional secretarial services.

 

The Councils function through a group of businessmen in Sri Lanka and a counterpart body in the partner country in close co-ordination with the diplomatic missions.  The overseas counterpart bodies are either a Chamber of Commerce or a Trade Promotion Organisation specially set up to encourage imports from developing countries.

 

The Business Councils have a great impact on promoting exports and attracting investments through joint meetings with partner countries. The Business Councils facilitate business matchmaking events through business promotion missions, trade fairs and product/service catalogue exhibitions and an exchange of business information as means to promote bilateral business.
