The growing conviction that the capacity of the Construction Industry which has great potential to stimulate economic growth had not been properly harnessed largely contributed to the formation of this apex body.
The Chamber is a company limited by guarantee where no profits or dividends could be declared to the members. The Chamber is administered by a Board of Directors elected by the Members under the direction of the Council which is also elected by the Members. All the stakeholders of the construction industry are very well represented in the Council, which is the main policy making body.
CCI is now positioned as the “Main Voice” on issues affecting the Construction Industry and is committed to protecting and promoting the construction industry. We endeavor to mediate wherever possible on issues faced by our members. It also acts as a facilitator of investments on development projects on Public- Private Partnership (PPP) model.
The Chamber enjoys a consultative status with the Government, Multilateral Development Banks and International Funding Agencies among many others.
