Adana Chamber of Commerce, an institution that is one of the oldest Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Turkey, was founded in 1894 in compliance with the orders of the Ministry of Commerce and Agriculture with the aim of controlling and regulating commerce, and particularly cotton trade. During those early years cotton exportation was an important activity in the region and the Chamber was established to develop and extend this trade; the pressure exerted by foreign buyers was also taken into consideration.

Between the years 1909 - 1911 our Chamber has taken the Chamber of Agriculture within its system and worked under the title of Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. After 1911 the Chamber has separated from the Chamber of Agriculture and begining with the 1st World War it has been known as Adana Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In 1966, upon the request of our Industrialist members, and agreement of the Chamber council and the permission given by the Ministry of Commerce a seperate Chamber of Industry was founded. Thereafter the title of our Chamber has been changed to "Adana Chamber of Commerce" (ACC) according to the Law numbered 5174, and it has been operating under this title ever since.
