The Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce (GCC) was founded in 1882 and now has over 250 member companies who, between them, employ over 50% of Gibraltar’s private sector workforce. The Chamber is represented on several government committees and its board has direct access to government ministries including the Chief Minister. As an independent, self-funded trade association, the GCC is ideally placed to provide valuable information and advice in the local business community. It offers a host of benefits to protect and enhance its members’ trading interests including regular updates on issues affecting businesses. Member companies, in turn, have the opportunity to provide feedback to the Chamber.
