Welcome to the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI)!
As the country’s voice of business, it is PCCI’s commitment to connect with and update you on the dynamics of the private sector and the direction to which the Chambermovement in the Philippines is headed.
The more than a hundred-year history of PCCI is rooted on its mission to help investors do better business. This mission of creating competitive, inclusive, and effective businesses has evolved from being a mere vessel to communicate the concerns of the business sector to being a crucial partner of the government in economic growth and nation-building.
