Site Visit to Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce


The Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce (檳州中华总商会), established in June 1903, was the first Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Malaya. Established in 1903, the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce (PCCC) was one of the pioneer trade organization founded at the turn of the twentieth century in this region.In January 1946 the British Military Administration decided to end Penang's duty-free status, together with the plan to break up the Straits Settlements and impose the Malayan Union prompted the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce to lead a protest of Penang's chambers of commerce. The Chamber is now one of the strongest commercial institutions in Malaysia in terms of membership and organisational and functional characteristic that is well recognised by both the public and private sectors. In 2003, the Registrar of Society of Malaysia (ROS) presented the Award Certificate of Excellent Society to the Chamber. The members of PCCC are from various business sectors, including enterprises, financial institutions, listed companies, housing and construction, garment and textiles, sole-agents and retailers.

This talk will be conducted by the President of the Penang Heritage Trust, Lim Gaik Siang, who is very familiar on the history, architecture and will share some early photos of this marvelous establishment.
