US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC)

The US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC) was established in 1973 as a 501 (c) (6) non-profit business association chartered in Washington D.C. The coalition of founders created a bilateral organization to promote trade, investment and joint ventures on both sides of the border. Now in its fourth decade of operation, the Chamber has grown into a unique non-profit corporation operating through 10 offices in Mexico and 10 offices in the United States. All chapters and offices, with strong local membership and international contacts, help businesses bridge differences in legal, regulatory and economic systems, as well as language and culture.
