The Value of an Association of Global Scope and Projection

The Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME) is the international association that represents the private sector of the Mediterranean, regrouping the Chambers of Commerce and Industry and similar entities of both shores of the region. Currently, the association –which has presence in continents: Africa, Asia and Europe- represents more than 300 members/associated members/partners from 23 countries and 250 cities surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.

The organization promotes the Mediterranean economy in the world, contributes to the economic and social development of the region and strongly encourages Euro-Mediterranean economic integration, through the essential role played by the private sector.

Nowadays, we occupy a prominent place in the field of cooperation between Chambers of Commerce, cities, and companies in the Mediterranean and with other regions in the world.

ASCAME is the voice of the Chambers of Commerce and companies of the Mediterranean before the major institutional, economic and multilateral actors, helping the Chambers to promote themselves and participate with their own voice in the key areas of Mediterranean development and offer a coordinated collaborative response.
