The International Group of Chambers of Commerce (IGCC) was established in 2005 on the initiative of the former President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce (CCIIP) Vittorio Hemsi. The aim was to create a united platform of communication for the international business community with the Polish Government.
Each member of the IGCC is identically represented on the Board and is able to contribute to define the action plans and activities of the organization. Activities of any Chamber, which organises events and meetings with Authorities for its member companies, are better coordinated. Starting with four Chambers as founders, CCIIP-BPCC-AMCHAM-CCIFP, today IGCC brings together 13 Chambers of Commerce representing 16 Countries and 2000 companies, which employe hundreds of people contributing to 90% of foreign investments in Poland.
Each member Chamber holds the Presidency of IGCC for a six-month term. The current Chair is held by the Belgian Business Chamber (BBC) from January until June 2021.
