The Grand Turk Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) and Industry is a non-profit organization, which represents a wide cross-section of private sector businesses in the island of Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. We have a membership base representive of the majority of registered companies and businesses from various industries including tourism, which as The Turks and Caicos Islands’ main industry, accounts for a critical percentage of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Other industries that we proudly represent include retail, construction and light manufacturing.
As the primary advocacy group for the private sector, we work in tandem with our valuable members in the business community, the Government of The Turks and Caicos Islands along with various Non-Government Organizations (NGO’s) on ways to further improve private enterprise, in order to ensure a vibrant and stable economy for Turks and Caicos Islanders, local business owners and international investors as well as the visitors who annually travel to our warm tropical paradise.
As a modern and futuristic Chamber of Commerce and Industry, we aggressively work to support our members and the business community at large. We strive to be at the forefront of various issues, which affect our members and intend to hold regular monthly business and educational seminars and expos in conjunction with our partners in the community. In addition, we serve as a lobbying group and address the varied concerns of our members through various dialogue and exchanges with government officials and various organizations. The Chamber intends to position itself as the local employers’ representative of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
Each year, in an effort to further encourage business excellence, as well as recognize the outstanding contributions made by leading businesspersons in the community, we intend to recognize an exemplary business leader who has dedicated the course of his or her life to the up building of business enterprise in Grand Turk through our Lifetime Achievement Award during a gala Awards Banquet to be held annually. We intend to introduce other Chamber Awards to be presented to innovators in the business community including the prestigious Businessperson of the Year, Business of the Year and our Developing Entrepreneur of the Year.
Future plans include the development of Trade Missions to a number of countries in order to foster economic trade and further deepen ties between these countries and The Turks and Caicos Islands. These are indeed exciting times for The Turks and Caicos Islands and business in general in our country, and if you are not already a member of the GTCC we encourage you to join and become a part of our proactive group.
