Reasons to become a member of ECCI
The mission of the Chamber is to promote entrepreneurship in Estonia through facilitating the development of an entrepreneur-friendly environment and providing high-quality, relevant and practical services for our members. In order to achieve its goals, the Chamber represents the interests of the members in the formation of Estonian economic policy, participates in the submission of proposals for improving legislation to the state and governing bodies.
The abovementioned facts summarise well why over 3,200 Estonian enterprises have decided to become our members. The Chamber has managed to develop a system that allows keeping an eye on legislation concerning Estonian business environment. To that end we forward information to our members, if necessary, we intervene and send the opinion of entrepreneurs to the legislators. The Chamber is a partner valued by state authorities, because our positions are reasoned; but we are often a feared partner, because in our positions we always show strength of principle and clearly disagree when an initiative has a negative impact.
We are proud of our achievements – last year we submitted ca 100 opinions regarding various legislative initiatives, all of them concerning making Estonian business environment more entrepreneur-friendly. Such capacity is extremely important in any country and the best way to ensure it is to have a strong organisation to represent businesses, the activities of which are supported by a large number of companies and that in its activities is independent of state support.
