Like any other organization , the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry has its humble beginning in the ports of Cebu way back in the early 19th century. It started only as a group of businessmen engaged in trading in the said port.

In, 1931, the Chamber was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission obtaining legal personality
After the second world war, the Chamber functioned more as a civic organization focusing more on social activities of members. However, more and more investors both foreign and local came to seek the Chamber’s advice and assessment regarding the business climate of Cebu. The Chamber then has to give briefing on the economic situation of Cebu and provide direction to would- be investors and assist them in looking for business partners. During this period the Chamber has meager resources merely relying on two administrative staff to man its office. Its operations was financed from dues collected from relatively small membership base.
In the 1960s during the onset of the international trade, the Chamber bolstered its trade promotion efforts by linking its members to potential buyers abroad through business matchings and trade missions. This was greatly facilitated through the publication of it’s business bulletin. The bulletin was considered the breakthrough in import and export business because it allowed businessmen who were looking for investment opportunities abroad make easy contacts with foreign businessmen.

The Chamber held dialogues and consultations with the government on a regular basis to ease out issues that concerns the business sector. The Chamber earned the respect and admiration of the government leaders as it was regularly consulted on matters affecting business.
