The Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ECCI) was established in 1925 and reestablished in 1989. The ECCI is the oldest and biggest representation organization for companies in Estonia. It is a private non-profit organization covering the whole Estonian region. Currently, the ECCI represents about 3500 enterprises that are responsible for more than 40% of the total net turnover of Estonian companies, nearly 40% of net profit, and pay more than 40% of state taxes. These enterprises are predominantly in the textile, metal, timber, construction, and food industries. 98% of ECCI member companies are SME-s.
The mission of the Chamber is to develop entrepreneurship in Estonia by taking an active part in designing economic policy and via rendering business services. The ECCI is an active partner to the parliament, government, and ministries in designing the economic policy and climate by speaking actively on behalf of the Estonian business community. ECCI also provides many business-related services – consultations (legal, foreign trade, EU-related), business matchmaking (trade missions, trade fair visits, presentations), information services (business contacts, cooperation proposals, etc.), training, and foreign trade documents. ECCI also hosts the Arbitration Court, which is the only permanent arbitration court in Estonia.
