Kitwe and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been in existence for over 50 years and is the most active chamber and has the largest membership in Zambia.
The Chambers primary role is that of lobbying and is the voice of the business community. The Chamber defends the cases of the business community through lobbying and representing them on matters that concern them from time to time. The chamber continually monitors the environment and is the mouth piece for the Kitwe Business community championing their cause for a better business environment. The government determines the environment in which businesses operate through policies, taxes and regulatory framework etc. These may not always be in the interest of the business community and this is where the chamber comes in to represent their interests. A business is continually affected by the environment within which it operates and to keep abreast with changing environment, the chamber monitors it on behalf of the business community while business persons concentrate on running their business. It represents & intervenes on matters concerning trade, civic and industrial matters.
Membership to the Chamber gives companies an opportunity to interact & network with the business community sharing ideas, keeping abreast on what is happening while they market themselves to other members. The Chamber promotes the development of trade, commerce and industry in Kitwe and throughout Zambia. It also considers and makes input into any matters connected directly or indirectly with such as trade, commerce or industry and to collect, circulate among its members information and other matters as maybe of interest.
