President of the Croatian Chamber of Economy Luka Burilović
The Croatian Chamber of Economy (CCE) is an independent professional and business organisation for all legal entities engaging in business within the Republic of Croatia. It was established in 1852, organised along European tradition lines as an institution which represents Croatian economic interests and on the so-called continental Chamber system, with compulsory membership. The impact of the CCE may be felt in a number of areas defined by the CCE Act, the Statute, as well as numerous special regulations which transfer the execution of public powers. The CCE pays special attention to the execution of public power entrusted to it to successfully carry out its role of service to its members as well as connection between state authorities and the business community.

In order to facilitate the optimal entrance of Croatian companies to international markets, especially to the markets of neighbouring countries and to the demanding EU market, the CCE decided to establish representative offices abroad. The Chamber has established representative offices in Belgium – Brussels and in Russian Federation – Moscow. The activities and interests of CCE Members are carried out through professional associations. Each CEE Member belongs to an association related to the registered activity or the affiliation, which bind activities. Functionally, the CEE includes 56 professional associations and 33 affiliations. Additionally, the CCE is the first public institution within the Republic of Croatia which has, from 2005, introduced and certified the quality management system related with the ISO 9001 Standard, in which is included not only the Headquarters in Zagreb, but also includes County Chambers.
