Established in 1991, the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) is a non-government, non-commercial organization, a part  of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry System of the Russian Federation. The legal basis of the MCCI activities is set forth in the Federal Law of the Russian Federation “On Chambers of Commerce and Industry in the Russian Federation”, the law of the City of Moscow “On the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry”, the MCCI Charter.

The primary objective of the MCCI is to provide support to the business community of Moscow, promote entrepreneurship in Moscow, and assist in building efficient cooperation between the business community and the authorities.

The MCCI currently unites over 3500 companies representing various segments and sectors of the city’s economy – small and medium businesses, large enterprises, non-profit and educational organizations, overseas offices of foreign companies.

The Mission of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry:

- Protection and promotion of entrepreneurs’ interests
- Expansion of the customer and partner network for the member companies

The Chamber's associations’ activities are also subject to reform. The MCCI currently incorporates guilds and committees, acting as working groups on a selected number of issues with subsequent submission of deliverables for review to the MCCI Board.

As part of the service model optimization the MCCI is seeking to optimize organization of events for better interaction within the business community, experience sharing, opinions exchange on urgent issues. Such events will be hosted on a regular basis in order to further enhance their efficiency.

The Chamber is aiming at increasing the proficiency level of the business community. The MCCI helps develop specialized educational programs for the members of the Chamber involving leading business experts. The Chamber also implements programs for the training of municipal officers aimed at increasing the efficiency of municipal governments.

The holistic initiative support is being developed by and within the framework of MCCI covering the entire flow from the initial step of idea advancement to the step of decision making by the public authorities. With this in mind a functional interaction with the Government of Moscow as well as the Moscow State Duma is being put in place.

Promotion of international cooperation is managed by MCCI in a form of MCCI Comissions on foreign economic cooperation with partners in various countries. Furthermore cooperation agreements have been signed with the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Berlin, Paris, Manhattan, Boston and other cities of the globe.
