Professional Associations

American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt (AmCham)

Efforts to establish an American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt date back to the 1950s, when Hassan El Abd, a prominent member of the business community initiated the idea. In October 1981, the founding of AmCham Egypt was approved and in 1982, it was formally established, making it the 44th American chamber of commerce established abroad and the first initiated in the Middle East. On January 18, 1983, AmCham Egypt elected its first board of governors.

Starting with a relatively informal group of around 200 members, today AmCham Egypt stands as one of the most active affiliates of the US Chamber of Commerce in the region. Since its inception, it has developed into one of the country’s most important and influential non-profit organizations, with over 1,800 members.

Through the years, AmCham Egypt has nurtured ongoing contact with business organizations in the United States. At times when US-Egyptian economic relations have been strained, AmCham Egypt has consistently advocated for an enhanced investment and trade relationship.
