The Middle East Commercial Center (MECC) is a newly established private sector-led alliance of business leaders across the region that are working together to promote greater intra-regional trade and investment and collectively address the most critical economic challenges and opportunities of our day.
The MECC advances projects and promotes public policies that contribute to greater regional economic integration and serves as a bridge for companies and organizations across the region to connect with each other. The MECC informs, educates, and advocates our respective governments in ways that can support the coalition’s objectives and contribute to private sector growth.
The MECC is being led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations. The MECC, in conjunction with the Chamber’s global network and affiliates, is governed by country steering committees–which incorporate a representative from each of the sector-specific Task Forces–and the International Advisory Board, composed of top level experts and private-sector representatives who guide and advise the actions of the MECC.
