DIHK | Deutscher Industrie- und Handelskammertag e.V.
The focus of the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs) and its Association (DIHK) on core competencies is reflected in the structure of their operating areas. They have six business segments with one single aspiration: to make sure that the Chambers of Industry and Commerce are the number one address. The DIHK is the central organisation for 81 Chambers of Industry and Commerce in Germany. All German companies registered in Germany, with the exception of handicraft businesses, the free professions and farms, are required by law to join a chamber. Thus, the DIHK speaks for more than three million entrepreneurs. They include not only big companies but also retailers and innkeepers. This gives the association considerable political influence. It does not represent any specific corporate group but all commercial enterprises in Germany.
