Profile

 

Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC) is a transnational business confederation composed of national commercial associations of the Silk Road countries. Currently SRCIC has over 110 organizational members from 75 countries, including state-level organizations and millions of affiliated enterprises, forming a community of shared interests, shared responsibilities and a shared future. 

 

Since its establishment in 2015, SRCIC has hosted eight important conferences, over 30 international visits and road shows, met with 18 Silk Road country leaders, and signed the Framework Agreement on Jointly Establishing a Mechanism and Platform for International Industry and Commerce Cooperation with more than 60 participating country members and international organizations. SRCIC has also signed the Proposal for Jointly Establishing Rules and Standards of Transnational Artwork Trading with over 80 chambers of commerce, and has issued the Xi'an Consensus for Contributing to a Global Community for a Shared Future.

 

SRCIC serves as a bridge connecting enterprises and governments, creating a cooperative platform between business associations and SRCIC members. It also is a key voice in the promotion of Belt and Road construction, and plays a vital role in advancing economic and social development with an emphasis on international collaboration and global governance.

 

As of 2017, SRCIC created eight professional committees of Trade, Finance, Culture, Transportation, Energy, Information, Industrial Parks and Standard and Brand. SRCIC has also facilitated five alliances, including the Silk Road Urban Alliance, the Silk Road Enterprise Development Alliance, the Belt and Road Association Alliance, the Silk Road International Museum Alliance, and the Silk Road Think Tank Alliance. It is comprised of six sub-organizations: the Silk Road International Development Fund, Silk Road Cultural Park, Silk Road International Commodity Exchanges, Silk Road Transnational Financial Leasing Alliance, the International Artwork Trading Center, and www.eSilkRoad.com. These organizations serve as platforms for pragmatic cooperation among SRCIC members.

 

SRCIC maintains the Silk Road spirit of peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning, mutual benefit, and the principle of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration to contribute to the building of a global community with a shared future. Promoting business and cultural exchange for a win-win outcome is the goal and mission for SRCIC in this new historical era.

 

SRCIC's headquarters is based in Hong Kong, its secretariat in Xi'an, and its representative offices in both Beijing and Shanghai. With the number of participating country members constantly increasing, SRCIC is stepping up with its global partners for the resilience of the world economy and sustainable development under the Belt and Road Initiative.
