Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (abbrev: SCCCI; Chinese: 新加坡中华总商会) is a business chamber in Singapore.

History

Established in 1906 as the General Chinese Trade Affairs Association, the SCCCI's original purpose was to look after the interests of the Chinese business community, but it has expanded its scope over the years. It served as a guardian of Chinese customs and values, provided assistance in times of crisis and promoted business, educational, cultural and community activities, and continues to do so today.

CCCI Building

The SCCCI Building is located on Hill Street, facing the Armenian Church. The building has a blend of Chinese and Western architectural styles. Although this site has housed the SCCCI's headquarters since the early twentieth century, the current building was built only in 1963 to replace an old two-storey structure.
