South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI)

Our Endorser

The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s stated mission is: “Using SACCI’s position as the most represented business organisation in South Africa to improve the business environment, in which members operate, thus enabling economic growth through international trade.”

This means that while we focus on investment in and for SA, import and export is at the core of our economic growth. Opportunity is distributed by SACCI to 10 000 of the top qualified prospects who are identified as potential buyers of South African products and investors into our economy. This distribution makes use of the extensive network of organised business available at the highest level.

With wide-ranging changes taking place in South Africa, as well as internationally, business people find it increasingly difficult to operate in isolation and ensure survival. The chamber movement represented by the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (formally known as South African Chamber of Business (SACOB)) and its almost 50 constituent chambers is a lifeline for business people. 

The SACCI membership comprises approximately 20 000 small, medium and large enterprises across the breadth of the nation and across all economic sectors. 

Large enterprises are generally direct members of SACCI while small and medium enterprises are members through more than 50 local and regional chambers and 15 national associations.
The chamber movement addresses all the economic, social and political issues affecting the business community in one way or another. 

The chamber movement is apolitical. It is “the voice of business” and it ensures that this voice is heard where it matters – where it is necessary to protect the interests of business, at local, regional and national levels. 

SACCI is a proponent of the role that business can play in socio-economic development in general and in contributing to national economic objectives specifically. We embrace a partnership approach to challenges in the business environment and in the national economy.
