The American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, Inc. is a private, independent and non-profit association incorporated under Philippines laws in July 1920. It is affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce of the U.S.A. (COCUSA) and the Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers (APCAC).

AmCham works closely with the American Embassy in Manila, particularly with the Foreign Commercial Service, the Economic Section, the Agricultural Office, USAID, and the Consular Section.

This is a commitment of long standing, as its mission statement declares:

“The Chamber exists to serve the needs and wants of U.S. businesses through the participation of members in promoting their long-term objectives, while contributing to the civic and economic development of the Philippines”.

AmCham also maintains the American Desk at the Board of Investments (BOI), Department of Trade & Industry, which started operation in 1992 as a concrete, visible commitment to actively assist U.S. companies and individuals doing business or desiring to do business in the Philippines.
