Ngazidja Chamber of Commerce : New Status

Raising awareness of the impact on the consular election process

The Ngazidja Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Union of Trade Chamber, Industry, and Craft, is hosting an enlightening workshop on Wednesday, March 6, 2024. The event is set to gather various economic stakeholders, including shopkeepers and craftsmen.

The primary objective of this workshop is to apprise economic operators of recent legislative changes implemented in 2023. This decree replaces the outdated 1995 law following the separation of the Chambers of Commerce and Agriculture. Hamidou Mhoma, the CCIA Ngazidja Regional Director, underscores that the Chamber of Commerce remains a governmental institution entrusted with safeguarding the interests of the private sector across the nation.

Moreover, the workshop aims to provide participants with insights into the impact of these changes on the consular election process. Among the modifications introduced by the new bylaws are an augmentation in the number of elected representatives and more stringent eligibility criteria. « To qualify for voting rights, individuals must have been Chamber members for at least one year preceding the election. To stand for election, one must have held Chamber membership for a minimum of three years and be affiliated with one of the partner organizations », adds Hamidou Mhoma.
