Brief History of CSCCI
The Camarines Sur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (CSCCI) is a domestic non-stock, non-profit and non-government business organization, currently based in Naga City. It is the first and only provincial chamber organized in Camarines Sur and is an affiliate of the Philippines Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI). The territorial jurisdiction of the Chamber shall consist of the towns in the Province of Camarines Sur, including the component City of Iriga and the chartered City of Naga.
The Camarines Sur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (CSCCI) was conceptualized in 2002, with development-oriented former Governor and Congressman, Luis R. Villafuerte at the helm of the project, supported by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), the Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) and the provincial office of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The rationale was to form a province-wide organization of committed businessmen and entrepreneurs who will serve, among others, as a private sector arm of the Provincial Government in the thrust to promote the economy of Camarines Sur by strengthening the business sector, encouraging joint ventures with other LGUs, NGOs and entities, and generating more economic activities and livelihood opportunities particularly
in the areas of agro-fishery modernization, investment promotion, and the development of mineral and tourism potentials.
The CSCCI, as an organization, is composed of almost two hundred (200) active and dynamic businessmen and professionals from diverse industries of the five (5) Congressional Districts of Camarines Sur and the cities of Naga and Iriga, to date. As a catalyst for business development in Bicol, the CSCCI serves as the voice of business in the Province of Camarines Sur and the vital linkage for all commerce and industry concerns in the region, the rest of the country, and the world.

It applies to all government offices and agencies in the Executive Department including local government units (LGUs), government-owned or -controlled corporations, and other government instrumentalities, located in the Philippines or abroad, that provide services covering business-related and non-business transactions as defined in the IRR.
