Advocacy Partners

The Chamber lobbies and advocates for businesses to protect members' interests and champion policies that allow New Zealand businesses to succeed. We do so both directly and indirectly through our strategic partners: BusinessNZ and the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce and Industry (NZCCI),

Each Chambers' role is to influence and inspire business and deliver success. As not-for-profit business membership associations, the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce promote, support and encourage sustainable, profitable business growth.

The Chambers do this by positively influencing the environment in which businesses operate, by providing training, advice, information and support.
