PROFILE

Northern Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry Affiliated to SACCI and SBI

Your ultimate business connection.

Our heritage in brief

Can you afford not to belong?

NOCCI was established on 22 February 2000 when the Chamber of Business and the Kimberley Afrikaanse Sakekamer amalgamated. At the time, these two organisations had served the business community of Kimberley for 120 years.

The increasingly complex business and social environment requires a comprehensive support structure to ensure the most favourable climate for the continued viable existence of individual businesses in a system of free enterprise. At the same time, the Chamber movement facilitates adjustment by business to those realities that cannot be altered. Involvement in the Chamber movement bears abundant fruit for the well-being of each business. If you are a businessperson with vision, you cannot afford not to join the Chamber movement.
