There are few problems which are impossible to solve by individual or organisational initiative. These problems are subject to be dealt with collective power and unity. To apply that collective power of the business community, effective trade organisation is required. There are about five hundred trade organisations in Bangladesh; among these 101 are chamber of commerce (district chambers, metropolitan chambers, joint chambers, international chambers etc.) and about 379 sectoral associations are mentionable. The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) is the apex institution that represents all the trade organisations of Bangladesh.
