Durban Chamber - Policy and Advocacy 


The Durban Chamber has mushroomed, from its small beginnings in 1856 to a substantial association, respected by its sister chambers throughout the country. Currently the oldest metropolitan chamber in Africa, we continue to add value to our chamber members through our robust interactions and partnerships with both the private and public sector. These initiatives are over and above the many great services offered by the chamber and the system of Standing Forums which meets regularly to consider relevant issues within the sectors that the committees represent.  

In enabling the vision of the Durban Chamber the Policy and Advocacy Department provides reliable and relevant policy perspective through:

  • Identifying government policy of relevance to business in Durban
  • Informing, through research, broader perspectives and approaches on such policy
  • Liaising with relevant institutional structures to enhance robust collaboration
  • Amplifying core issues that impact on business with a short, medium and long term perspective
  • Promoting a proactive appreciation of broad based economic, social and environmental sustainability
  • Advocating good practice to our members and enabling policy to the city, province and state
  • Assisting in promoting partnership approaches to complex problematical issues influencing business
