Who are we ?
Founded in 1898, the Canton of Vaud Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CVCI) is a purely private – and therefore unsubsidised – association. It derives its resources from the contributions of its members, the sale of services and the various mandates it fulfils.
As a point of contact and mouthpiece for firms which support the principles of the market economy, the CVCI is a member of economiesuisse and the Swiss Employers’ Association. It also belongs to the vast national and international network of chambers of commerce and industry (CCI).
The CVCI is an independent association which gathers companies from all economic sectors and whose missions are the following:
- Development of the economy and companies: Contribute to the development of the canton's economy and to the companies' success
- Political action: Defend and promote framework conditions which are in line with the principles of the market economy, boosting competitiveness, openness and the economic and sustainable development
- Services: Provide member companies with original and high-quality services which are of benefit to their operations and which complement the services available on the market
- Platform for networking and thinking: Provide member companies with all the advantages of an associative organization within a privileged and professional framework for business development
