About Us

The American Chamber of Commerce in Southwest China is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that promotes commerce and investment between the United States and Southwest China. Established in 1988, AmCham Southwest has grown into the largest and most influential foreign chamber of commerce in Southwest China. Our Board of Governors and members have made significant strides in furthering AmCham Southwest’s mission to increase U.S.-China trade, facilitate cooperation between U.S. and Chinese companies, build relationships with U.S. and Chinese government bodies in Southwest China, and promote corporate social responsibility. The Chamber maintains strong relations with the American Consulate in Chengdu to help foster vibrant and constructive commercial relations between the U.S. and Southwest China.
Over the past years, the AmCham family has expanded to more than 300 members, which include Fortune 500 companies, foreign enterprises, and well-known Chinese businesses. At the request from members hoping to pursue expanding business opportunities in the region, we established a branch office in Chongqing in 2009.
