The "European Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Franchise" is an internationally operating non-governmental organisation.
The establishment of an organisation by European business executives, entrepreneurs, professionals and corporations wishing to promote and contribute to the EU harmonisation efforts was long overdue. With this in view, the European Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Franchise was formed in 2006 with the following aims and objectives including the general support of the political, economic, social, scientific, cultural and environmental aims and objectives of the EU governments through the private sector:
To be the unified, independent, and influential voice of European Business
To be a member value driven organization serving European Companies across all industries and services throughout Europe
As a member based organization, the European Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Franchise seeks to:
Ensure greater market access and a level playing field for European Companies
Improve market conditions for all businesses in Europe
Facilitate networking among members and stakeholders
Bring specific information relevant to its members on doing business in Europe
Update its members on economic trends and legislation in Europe
We are an independent, non-profit organisation governed by our members.

We operate as a single, networked organisation across Europe.
We maintain close, constructive relations with the European authorities while retaining our independence.
We seek the broadest possible representation of European business in Europa within our membership: large, medium and small enterprises from all business sectors and European Member States.
