The American Chamber of Commerce in Hungary (AmCham) is a non-governmental, non-political and financially independent organization representing the interest of its close to 420 members from 23 different countries. Since its inception in 1989 AmCham Hungary has become the largest AmCham in Central and Eastern Europe with the continued mission “to be the leading representative for US and international business in Hungary, and to promote the global competitiveness of the country”.
Internationally, AmCham Hungary draws strength from its membership in the European Council of American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams in Europe), represents over 17,000 companies and over 1.1 trillion USD investment in Europe and the USA, as well as major policy makers from both the United States and the European Union. AmCham Hungary also works closely with other AmChams in the CEE region on advocacy issues, such as taxation or sustainability. AmCham is member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation.
The AmCham Code of Business Ethics is a cornerstone of what the Chamber stands for and strives to maintain. As such, it is a prerequisite for new members to adopt the Code of Ethics upon joining. As an organization dedicated to the development of international business within Hungary, AmCham considers one of its most significant goals to be the establishment of high standards of business conduct and principles of Good Corporate Citizenship.
