Abstract

There are many challenges/barriers to operate a business enterprise beyond individual capacity. Therefore entrepreneurs became united under a single platform like chamber of commerce or sector specific associations around the world. Similarly Bangladeshi entrepreneurs/businessmen are united under two types of trade bodies namely the chamber of commerce and sectoral associations. There are four different types of chamber of commerce in Bangladesh. These are district chambers, metropolitan city based chambers, joint chambers and international chamber of commerce. According to a recent list of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) there are 101 chambers of commerce and 379 associations in Bangladesh. The objective of all the trade bodies is capacity building of Bangladeshi private sector from respective fields and negotiating unitedly with the government to create and maintain a congenial business environment in home and abroad. Research based information has no alternative to carry forward this function of the trade-bodies successfully.
