The Paris Chamber of Commerce (Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris or CCIP) is a Chamber of Commerce of the Paris region. It defends the interests of 310,000 corporations of the Paris, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, and Val-de-Marne départements that create 20% of France's GDP.

The CCIP was created on February 25, 1803 by Napoléon Bonaparte and is the successor to the Guilds of the Ancien Régime. It was initially located in the préfecture, before transferring to the building now occupied by the Paris Bourse. It is now located in the Hôtel Potocki.
