AMCHAM Luxembourg is the largest and most active private Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg. Affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC and the Association of American Chambers of Commerce in Europe, AMCHAM Luxembourg is the de-facto International English speaking Chamber of Commerce, representing over 450 English speaking internationally focused companies (30% US, 20% Luxembourg and 50% from other counties of origin). Our members are the leaders in their individual sectors of Luxembourg business activity. Collectively we are a welcoming, enthusiastic, high energy English speaking international melting pot where all are treated equally and well.
Celebrating 23 year of activities in Luxembourg during 2018, we deliver on the things that international people and companies in Luxembourg want:
- Information on how things work
- Problem solving (when we want to change how things work)
- and lobbying with the government
AMCHAM has 19 standing committees: Chairman/ CEO Advisory Board, Risk/Audit/Compliance, Corporate Services, Seniors, Insurance, HR, Communications/IT, Financial Sector, Tax, Entrepreneur and new Business activities, Marketing, Diversity, English language education, Legal, Newcomers to Luxembourg, Real Estate, Space Activities, and our monthly business lunch ABAL, the American Business Association Luxembourg, which was founded at the end of World War II. In addition to business related activities, the AMCHAM committee activities also cover the full scope of expatriate issues.
These committees organize lobbying White Papers, information articles and organize seminars and after-hour networking events with international speakers in order to address issues relevant to our members.
