Cape Chamber of Commerce


Aug 29, 2012
Established in 1804, the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the oldest member-based business organisation in Africa. It is mandated to serve, enable and lead business. This is achieved through a plethora of services, networking opportunities as well as robust advocacy on behalf of business.

Executive Director, Viola Manuel, is guiding the organisation into an exciting future where it will be taking a far more active role in promoting the cause of its more than 3 000 members.

Roughly two thirds of the Chamber members are made up of small, medium and micro enterprises. While just over half of the members have turnovers under R5 million per annum, a substantial 14 percent have annual turnovers of over R50 million per annum.
