The Statutes of Association define the business purpose and our basic organisational framework.

Swiss – Iranian Chamber Association

The Swiss-Iranian Chamber of Commerce and Industry EST 1976 was founded in 1976 in Zurich. As an independent association according to the article 60 of the Swiss Civil Code, the Chamber supports the economic relations between Switzerland and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The Chamber is politically and ideologically neutral and is funded by membership fees and services. The Chamber does not receive governmental financial support, neither from the Swiss nor the Iranian authorities.

Our members are Swiss and Iranian companies and individuals. Our work is based on cooperation with authorities and other trade associations.

What we want

  • promoting the exchange of technologies and know-how and supporting efforts to establish joint ventures in all business areas.
