About

History

Over a hundred years of serving businesses in the Philippines and abroad

Incorporated in 1920, the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AmCham) has been striving to contribute to the Philippine economic growth for the socioeconomic development of the Filipinos.

Its service has long started as the Manila Coffee Round Table (1902) and later as the Manila Merchants Association. Although with different names, the Chamber’s commitment did not waver through time. It has been true to its commitment of developing and looking after the welfare of American businesses in the Philippines.

What We Do

“The Chamber exists to serve the interests of Philippine and American businesses through the participation of members in promoting their long-term objectives, while contributing to the civic and economic development of the Philippines.”

The AmCham Executive Director

 

Like all great organizations, AmCham is consistently looking for improvements. Therefore I am especially elated to have our new and improved website. I had a long list for items I wanted our members to be able to get from our website and most if not all have been incorporated into our new website.

First and foremost it must be user friendly to computers as well as mobile devices. Secondly it must allow members and guest to register for meetings and be able to pay online.  Thirdly it should have relevant content of events, news, and other relevant updates. Lastly it needs to allow our members to have a corner of their own where they can easily find member companies to do business with. The new “Members Only” section will provide that benefit.

This new website is worlds ahead of our previous website but like the first paragraph mentions, we will not stop looking for improvements and ways to better provide the best to our membership.

We are open for your comments and suggestions.

I hope you enjoy the new look and thanks for your support.

"The American Chamber makes a difference. While there are many professional organizations companies can join, none offer the breadth and depth of benefits AMCHAM does — from our monthly general membership meetings with powerful and engaging speakers to networking nights and all the subcommittees that focus on specific market segment issues.  AMCHAM is the “go to” organization every company should be affiliated.  Like E.F. Hutton, when AMCHAM speaks, everyone listens."
