Close Connection to Germany

DIHK - German Chambers of Commerce

AHKs are closely connected to the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs) in Germany. Together, they support German companies with building up and extending their business relations to foreign countries.
The umbrella organization of the IHKs is the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), which also coordinates and supports the AHKs. Furthermore, the cooperation with various German trade associations strengthens the link from AHKs to business and markets.

Three tasks of AHKs

  • Official Representation of German Companies
    AHKs are the key players of German foreign business development on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. They represent German business interests in their countries and they inform about and promote Germany as business location.
  • Member Organizations
    AHKs are member organizations for companies actively involved in the bilateral business relations. These members give them the authority needed when interacting with politics, business and administration in terms of promoting the bilateral business relations.
  • Service Providers to Companies
    Under the brand “DEinternational” AHKs provide services to companies both from Germany and their host countries in order to support their foreign business activities.
