The Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce – Southeast Chapter

The Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce advocates Swiss, American and Multinational Business Interests. We further our members’ business interests in Switzerland, the U.S., and worldwide.
The Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization. It receives no support from either Swiss or US governments.

The Southeast Chapter brings business leaders together to facilitate contacts and provide networking platforms for Swiss businesses in the Southeast and U.S. businesses with interests in Switzerland. The Chapter represents the mutual interests of members and takes action to further their interests by facilitating the mobility of member firms and their employees in both countries.

In addition, the Chapter promotes both countries as advantageous places to do business by fostering good corporate citizenship to benefit the communities in which members do business.
