The Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry, which originates from the Incheon Merchants Association formed in 1885, is a special corporation established by Korea's Chambers of Commerce and Industry Act. Representing 170,000 businesspeople based in Incheon, the chamber has contributed to the city`s economic development as a single comprehensive economic organization through activities such as policy recommendations to the government, promotion of international commerce and investment, surveys, research, company support and the provision of management information.

To enhance the global competitiveness of member companies, the chamber has formed sister and friendly relations with 30 counterparts in 12 countries, including the Chiba Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Japan in 1980; the Taiwan Commerce Association in 1985; the Shandong Chamber of Commerce & Industry of China in 1991; the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce of the U.S.; the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Russia; and the Malaga Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Spain.

The Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry is doing its best in trade, technical exchanges, and mutual investments between Incheon's companies and those abroad through active exchanges worldwide by expanding friendly relations with similar chambers in leading global cities, especially those in Asia.

In addition, the Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in conjunction with Incheon Metropolitan City, is striving to optimize the foreign investment climate and improve support policies to create the Ganghwa Industrial Complex and foreign investment companies to facilitate the investment and entry of foreign corporations and Korean U-turn companies to Incheon.

Korea spares no support for its manufacturing industry, something that separates the country from others. The Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry has supported a number of management and trade operating funds, supplied Korean and foreign personnel, and protected and supported intellectual property rights. In addition, we have helped transactions, implemented free trade agreements, offered investment counseling for foreign companies, and provided free management consulting through experts fluent in English, Chinese and Japanese.

To global businessmen who are interested in investment and business in Korea, we sincerely ask for a lot of love and attention for Korea, Incheon and the Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

The Incheon Chamber of Commerce & Industry will do its best to serve as your Korean business partner.

We look forward to your continued interest and support. Thank you very much.
