A Business-Friendly Environment

CoachmanThe Chamber lobbies the various levels of government to promote and protect the interests of business. It plays a major role in promoting the development of Johannesburg as the economic hub of the African continent. Members support this endeavour through their membership fees, and they participate and provide input for the lobby through various interest-group commissions.

The Chamber has an office in Midrand to assist members with Certificates of Origin, and sub-committees in Midrand and Sandton to represent the interests of members in these areas.
