A brief background of the Chamber Institution in Greece
The UHCC and all 59 Hellenic Chambers (of Commerce – lndustry – Craft – Professional) are independent and self- financed organisations operating under the legal form of a Public Law Legal Entity. The UHCC is administrated by a 9-member Administration Board, elected every four years by the General Assembly, with the participation of all member-Chambers. Each Chamber is administrated by an Administration Council and an Administration Board, elected every four years, respectively, by the member-businesses. The UHCC and all Chambers are subject to supervision by the General Secretariat for Commerce of the Ministry of Development and Competitiveness, regarding their proper operation and the legality of their actions, in the context of the self-sufficiency they are vested with.
