About Bombay Chamber
The Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry is India’s premier chamber of commerce and industry located in Mumbai, which is the country’s industrial, financial and commercial capital. Established in 1836, it is the oldest Chamber in the nation and has served trade and industry through 187 years of continuous service. It is registered under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013 (Section 25 of The Companies Act, 1956) a non-profit organisation.
Not only is the Chamber known for its longevity, but also for its impeccable lineage. The Chamber plays an important role in promoting the city and the region as a trade, commerce, and industry hub.
Although the name ‘Bombay Chamber’ may suggest a membership organization exclusive to the city of Mumbai, in reality the organization stands for a wide spectrum of highly reputed companies whose manufacturing facilities and commercial influence extend not only throughout India but also worldwide.
One of the major focuses of the Bombay Chamber today is on how to expand Manufacturing setups and substitute imported products under “Atmanirbhar Bharat” so that MSME’s can survive and grow in the current business climate. As part of its efforts to improve India’s competitiveness, the Bombay Chamber has delivered a number of representations to the authorities. It has also hosted several seminars and lectures on policy-related topics.
This year’s mission is an attempt to marry the rich legacy of the chamber with the opportunities that can be unleashed in this new global world by working together as India Inc. The more we come together as leaders of India Inc and work with the government and regulators, higher will be the value we can unlock for all of us. This ‘Collaborative Development’ will have four critical aspects (1) Embracing Digitalization (2) Bringing sustainability at the heart of business (3) Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (4) Enhancing Ease of Doing Business. We will continue to strive for impactful delivery across the four pillars of the mission.
We shall continue to hold Conclaves, Conferences and Surveys on subjects of current interests. The Chamber also came out with various publications like
