The North Karelia Chamber of commerce
We work towards a competitive county where companies succeed.
Part of a worldwide network
Chambers of commerce make up a global and widely accredited collaboration organization promoting business life. They are independent from any public funding. The first chamber of commerce was established in Marseilles in 1599 by enterprises, merchants and seafarers.
The purpose of a chamber of commerce is to promote business life. As an advocate for business life, a chamber of commerce has influence on legislation and decision making. It advances market economy and promotes collaboration between the business sector and various authorities. Committee work is at the heart of our advocacy activities. Committees are platforms and channels for our members’ expertise and views. Our activities also include training to update and verify professional skills, and we grant foreign trade documents.
