The World Chambers Federation is the only global institution associating entrepreneurial entities and trade chambers throughout the world. It represents around 1,700 trade chambers, including national chambers, regional chambers and large trans-national chambers, such as Eurochambres and the Association of Chambers of Commerce in Latin America.
