The Association of American Chambers of Commerce in Latin America and the Caribbean (AACCLA)


Advancing Business In the Americas

For nearly a century, the American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams) have been the most influential voice of U.S. business in Latin America and the Caribbean. Today, joined together in the Association of American Chambers of Commerce in Latin America and the Caribbean, these 23 AmChams represent more than 20,000 companies and over 80% of U.S. investment in the region.

Policy Overview

AACCLA forms its policy objectives through constant dialogue with its network of 23 AmChams in almost every country in Latin America. These consultations enable AACCLA to identify the most important issues to U.S. investors and their trading partners and to lobby effectively for policies that will address these concerns.

AmChams Overview

AmChams play an important role as links between the private sector and the governments in their host countries and in the United States. Their unique positioning enables them to effectively lobby for the interests and needs of their members. Their extensive experience and knowledge of doing business in the region make them a key resource for any U.S. company seeking to expand its operations into the Latin American and Caribbean markets.

Leadership Circle Overview

AACCLA’s Chair’s Leadership Circle offers senior executives a unique opportunity to interact with the hemisphere’s most influential private sector and government officials in forums designed to advance the full range of their professional interests. No other organization provides such high level access, such broad business development opportunities, or so many mechanisms for influencing the U.S. and regional political, trade and regulatory agencies.
