SERVICES

As members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, AmChams benefit from innumerable services and privileges associated with U.S. Chamber membership. AmChams advance the interests and views of U.S. business overseas to uphold the highest standards of commercial practice, and to serve as a bridge to communicate the point of view of the U.S. trade partners to the American business public. Through AmChams, business people of the United States and host countries come together and promote their mutual interests. AmChams can be an important force in helping to create opportunities for international businesses in foreign countries, which in turn brings significant value to the countries where the business is being conducted. The U.S. Chamber mission in Africa is to build lasting prosperity for Africans and Americans through job creation and entrepreneurial spirit.

The major activity of an AmCham is to provide services to member firms who support the organization. AmCham Libya facilitates business between the U.S. and Libya, provides a forum in which American and Libyan business people can identify and address common areas of interest regarding their commercial interests in Libya and has as its goal the promotion of a vibrant economy, while protecting and advancing the interests of our members, and the community as a whole.

The reconstruction of Libya is one of the largest and most important undertakings in the region in recent memory. Libyans deserve the best of what the world can offer, and businesses that are willing to make the commitment have the opportunity to reap great benefits. It is in this spirit that AmCham Libya strives to help both sides.
