History & Mission

The Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia (AACCGP) is a nonprofit organization registered in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It was organized in exclusively charitable and educational purposes. Our mission includes, but is not limited to, promoting and fostering relationships between Asian American and non-Asian communities, providing technical assistance and educational services for the start-up and growth of Asian American businesses, and bringing together Asian American business owners and professions, serving as a liaison between the federal, state and local governments and other chambers of commerce organizations, and promoting education programs to increase awareness of Asian American businesses.

We are dedicated to promoting regional economic growth between Asian & non-Asian businesses while advancing business-friendly public policies, servicing our members through outstanding programs, benefits, and services. The Chamber motto is Making Connections that Matter. Through this member-focused community, you can discover what you need and where you need to go, whom to call, and ultimately why becoming a member of the AACCGP is one of the best strategies for growing your business.

As an advocate for regional development, the AACCGP is dedicated to supporting and encouraging the continued growth of each of our member companies in conjunction with the community at large. The Chamber strives to influence business-friendly legislation in all levels of government, participate in initiatives to improve education and the community, present professional enrichment programs, and provide our members with cost-efficient ways to run their businesses.
