The Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce & Industry is an autonomous institution of public interest. It enjoys its own legal entity to represent the various productive and services activities of the private sector in Abu Dhabi Emirate. According to the provisions of the Chamber law, all natural and legal persons, having their headquarters, branch or representation office in the Emirate to exercise any commercial, industrial, vocational or professional activity in the Emirate must join the Chamber and get their membership certificates.
Hence, the Chamber is viewed to be the party concerned with patronizing the various activities of the private sector. It is among its tasks and duties to render best services to member firms and companies. Membership certificates are duly issued to such members who are kept updated on how to take the utmost advantages of the Chamber services and available data or information. They are also well apprised of the Chamberís regular and occasional functions or events, as well as of its tasks and duties in general.
Through such data and information, the Chamber members can participate in various domestic and international functions or events through which they may be better able to introduce their companies or products. Through such interaction, the Chamber may have a much clearer vision on their problems and the obstacles they are facing. Such problems are usually discussed in a bid to find appropriate solutions. Recommendations seeking that end may, thereafter be presented to competent authorities requesting required actions to be taken whenever necessary.
Ever since its inception in 1969, the Chamber discussed many economic laws and legislation that regulated the economic performance in the Emirate. Being a member in the Federation of the UAE Chambers of Commerce & Industry, the Chamber could play a significant role in discussing and drafting such laws and regulations on the UAE level. The Chamber presence in the international arena was gradually expanded through multi-membership in many Arab and world chamber counterparts. Thus the Chamber joined the Arab-French, the Arab-Swiss, the Arab-American, the Arab-Belgian, the Arab Luxembourg and the Arab-German Chambers of Commerce & Industry.
The Chamber is also represented in such boards as those of the UAE-Turkish Businessmen Board, UAE-Syrian Businessmen Board and the UAE-Indian Businessmen Board. It is also member in the Federation of the AGCC Chambers of Commerce & Industry, the Federation of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture, the Islamic Chamber and the Arab Labor Organization. Such representation, of course comes within the framework of its membership in the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce & Industry.
