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 the capital of the UAE. 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.
Ever since its inception in 1969, the chamber discussed many economic laws and legislation that regulated the economic performance in the Emirate. The chamber presence in the international arena was gradually expanded through multi-membership in many Arab and world chamber counterparts. However, the chamber has a branch office in Al Ain city. The said branch is meeting the demands of the business community in Al Ain and offers them whatever services or information they need.
The ADCC’s employees are spread over ten bodies. Each body is specialized in certain duties and they all boil down to the service of the members and particularly to the service of the national economy in general. These bodies are: The High Management, Al Ain Branch Administration, Abu Dhabi Commercial Conciliation and Arbitration Centre, Membership and Registration Body, Finance and Administration Sector, Information Technology, Trade Relation Sector, Information Centre and Media Relation, Training and Development Centre, and Legal Section.
