The London Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) was established on 25 July 1881 at Mansion House in the City of London with 130 members. It represented the London metropolis.

The London Chamber of Commerce & Industry is one of the Strategic Partners of The Middle East Association[1] and is an accredited member of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).[2]

Federation of Commonwealth Chambers of Commerce[edit]

From 1911–1975, the Federation of Commonwealth Chambers of Commerce operated out of the premises of the LCCI. The Federation aimed to increase trade within the Commonwealth. The Federation held triennial congress, which rotated through the Commonwealth.[3]

In 1927, the Davson Baronetcy was created for Edward Rae Davson, then Chairman of the Federation.[4]

The Federation underwent several name changes, reflecting the political structure of the Commonwealth:[5]

  • British Imperial Council of Commerce 1911–1926
  • Federation of Chambers of Commerce of the British Empire 1926–1955
  • Federation of Commonwealth and British Empire Chambers of Commerce 1955–1961
