AHK Philippinen - Competent. Reliable. Fast.
Identified as one of the Next-11 countries, the Philippines is considered as one of the upcoming, largest and fastest growing economies. The German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (GPCCI) sees an undiscovered potential here.
Since our foundation in 2008 we are determined to support the growth of the Philippine economy.
We promote bilateral trade by supporting the market entry of German companies and represent Germany as strongest economic partner from Europe. We strongly believe in upholding our mission to serve as a working platform for the German business community and promote German companies, products and services.
AHK - Well Connected Worldwide
In 130 locations in 90 countries around the world, the members of the German Chamber Network (AHKs) offer their experience, connections and services to German and foreign companies. AHKs are located in all countries which are of special interest for German companies.
The three main tasks of the AHK
1. Official Representation of German Companies
AHKs are the key players of German foreign business development on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. They represent German business interests in their countries and they inform about and promote Germany as business location.
2. Member Organizations
AHKs are member organizations for companies actively involved in the bilateral business relations. These members give them the authority needed when interacting with politics, business and administration in terms of promoting the bilateral business relations.
3. Service Providers to Companies
Under the brand "DEinternational" AHKs provide services to companies both from Germany and their host countries in order to support their foreign business activities.
A Close Connection to Germany
AHKs are closely connected to the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs) in Germany. Together, they support German companies with establishing and extending their business relations to foreign countries.
The umbrella organisation of the IHKs is the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), which also coordinates and supports the AHKs. Furthermore, co-operation with various German trade associations strengthens the link between AHKs and business and markets.
The German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. is supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy in accordance with a Resolution of the German Parliament.
