Kamer van Koophandel en Nijverheid

Serving the Island of St. Maarten, Dutch Caribbean

About us

The St.Maarten Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization which represents a wide cross-section of private sector businesses on St.Maarten Dutch Caribbean. 

We currently have a membership base of more than 17000 registered companies from various industries including tourism, which as St.Maarten’ only industry accounts for 95% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Other industries that we proudly represent include banking and finance, retail, construction and light manufacturing. As the primary advocacy group for the private sector, we work in tandem with our valuable members in the business community, the Government of St.Maarten along with various Non-Government Organizations (NGO’s) on ways to further improve private enterprise, in order to ensure a vibrant and stable economy for more than 100,000 Residents, thousands of local business owners and international investors as well as the 2 million plus visitors who annually travel to our warm tropical paradise.

 

As we approach the modern and futuristic Chamber of Commerce, we are aggressively working to support our members and the business community at large. We are at the forefront of various issues, which affect our members and hold business and educational seminars and expos in conjunction with our partners in the community. In addition, we serve as a lobbying group and address the varied concerns of our members through various dialogue and exchanges with government officials and various organizations.

 

To begin, each year in an effort to further encourage business excellence, as well as recognize the outstanding contributions made by leading businesspersons in the community we recognize an exemplary business leader who has dedicated the course of his or her life to the up building of business enterprise in St.Maarten through our coveted Lifetime Achievement Award during our annual gala Awards Banquet.

 

Other Chamber Awards presented to pacesetters in the business community include the prestigious Businessperson of the Year, Business of the Year in Category A with 51 or more employees, Business of the Year in Category B with 50 or fewer employees and our Developing Entrepreneur of the Year.

 

These are indeed exciting times for St.Maarten and business in general, and if you are not already a member of the SXMCOCI we encourage you to join and become a part of our active Chamber!
