In 1917, a small group of businessmen in Singapore formed the American Association, which served the interests of American business well over the subsequent 50 years, including two world wars, until the late 1960s.
By the late 1960s, U.S. investments in Singapore had grown substantially. Oil exploration and refinery companies, heavy industrial manufacturers and financial institutions made up the majority of American businesses in Singapore. As a result of the growth, it was determined that a separate organization was needed to serve the interests of American business.
In December 1973, the American Business Council was registered as a trade society and employer’s group. By the end of 1974, membership had increased to 226 members, and ABC had joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
AmCham Guangdong is a non-partisan, non-profit business organization, certified in 1995 by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC. AmCham Guangdong represents over 500 American and international companies doing business in South China.
