Dubai, November 22nd, 2018: The President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania (CCIR), Mr. Mihai Daraban, attends the World Chambers Federation (WCF) General Assembly, held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on November, 21st-22nd. The participation of the President of CCIR at this meeting represents a premiere in the history of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania, the World Chambers Federation being the most important governing body of the chambers of commerce worldwide.

The WCF General Council promotes and at the same time protects the concept of “chambers of commerce” as key intermediaries between the business environment and the political decision-maker, as well as between companies and the general public. The Council provides assistance in setting up chambers of commerce or strengthening existing chambers, especially in developing countries and in emerging economies. At the same time, the General Council encourages cooperation between chamber organizations around the world in order to improve the services provided by them.

“It is for the first time in the history of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania when the institution is invited to attend the meeting of the General Council of the World Chambers Federation. This is a confirmation for us that the efforts made to support the Romanian business environment in general and the internationalization of domestic business, in particular, were not in vain and, moreover, they enjoy global recognition”, said the President of CCIR, Mr. Mihai Daraban.


The World Federation of Chambers (WCF) is a non-political and non-governmental body of the ICC. Established initially in 1951 as the International Office of Chambers of Commerce, WCF aims to unify and support the global network of chambers of commerce.

WCF plays an essential role in the interaction between different organizations and chambers of commerce around the world. Thus, partnerships are created to help implement more business-building initiatives in developing economies and emerging economies. At present, there are partnerships with more than 12,000 chambers of commerce around the world.
