In 1950, the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Singapore, represented by its then President, Mr R. Jumabhoy, played a vital role in catalyzing the early beginnings of The Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce, Malaya. Under the distinctive leadership of Mr S.O.K Ubaidulla, The Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce, Malaya flourished with the membership of some of its early constituents, such as the ICC of Selangor, Ipoh, Seremban, Johor and Kelantan.
Today, the Malaysian Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (MAICCI) is proudly represented both domestically and internationally, and is one of the founding members of the National Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (NCCIM).
Serving as a voice for the Malaysian Indian business community and as the agent for the implementation of Government policies MAICCI plays a pivotal role in the promotion, protection and advancement of all economic interests of the Malaysian Indians. MAICCI strives to continuously represent and assist Indian merchants, traders and manufacturers in the States of Malaysia in all aspects that concern their businesses.
