Bharat Ratna Sir. M. Visvesvaraya was an engineering genius, a visionary, a statesman and most importantly a great Institution builder. The erstwhile Mysore Chamber of Commerce founded by him on May 8th 1916 started serving the interests of the Business community since its inception. Mr W.C. Rose served as the first President of the Chambers from 1916 till 1920.The Chamber later became the Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI). Over the last 100 years, the Chamber has had a distinguished array of businessmen and industrialists at the helm of FKCCI, establishing it as an apex organization for Industry, Trade & Service sectors in Karnataka.

With a century of service in commerce and industry, it is no wonder that the FKCCI stands as one of the five foremost chambers in the country apart from being the oldest parent chamber of any state in India. Currently, the membership at FKCCI stands at 3000 direct members and more than 250000 indirect members drawn from all sectors of Trade, Commerce and Industry, spread over Karnataka, including 26 District Chambers of Commerce and 135 Trade Industry Associations.

PRESIDENT'S NOTE

Ramesh Chandra Lahoti

Today, the world of business has become so connected online that it may be the hardest thing in the world to find a business without a website of its own!

Even so, it is not enough to list a website, and think that it is now for the world around us to connect with us.

Just like how we grow a plant, we have to grow our website. And that is precisely what we all have to do, together, as one.

The Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FKCCI) is an apex body that is not only the most active Chamber in the country, but also has a reputed overseas footprint, in terms of collaborative engagement with other stakeholders abroad.
