Summary

Unioncamere, the Union of Italian Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Trade and Agriculture, is a public agency that handles and represents the interests of the Chambers of Commerce and other agencies of the Italian chamber system. 

For the exercise of the functions and tasks entrusted by law to chamber bodies, Unioncamere stipulates program agreements, understandings and conventions with the central administrations of the State, national or local public bodies, promoting and supporting the connection of the Chamber system with business organisations, consumers and workers.
 


History

Founded in 1901, it creates and manages services and activities of interest to the Chambers of Commerce and economic categories, coordinating the initiatives of the System through directives and addresses to the bodies that are part of it. 

At the European level, it ensures the representation of the Italian Chambers of Commerce within Eurochambres, the association that brings together the chamber systems of Europe.
