Working for a strong economy – Connecting businesses
The Geneva Chamber of Commerce, industry and services (CCIG) aims for a strong economy that allows those engaged in it locally to go about their business in optimal conditions. To this end, the CCIG has four mission objectives: to improve the framework conditions of the economy, to support its members through networking, to provide services to member companies and to inform members and provide them with documentation. A private association founded in 1865, the CCIG has 2200 member companies both large and small from all sectors, totalling close to 122 000 jobs in the Canton. Fully independent from the State, its autonomy and membership entitle it to speak with the authorities on behalf of business. [Back to the top]
