The Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Coimbatore (ICCIC) was founded on 5th September 1929 by Sir R K Shanmugam Chetty, who went on to become the first Finance Minister of independent India. He served as the President of the Chamber till 1934. Since then, many illustrious personalities have led the Chamber. They include C S Rathnasabapathy Mudaliar, G R Govindarajulu, Sir G D Naidu, G K Sundaram and K G Balakrishnan.

In its more than seven decades of functioning as a collective body, the Chamber has worked towards safeguarding the interests of the trade, commerce and industrial community. It has functioned effectively as a mediator between the Government and the business community in implementing economic and industrial policies of the Government and also in sorting out other problems.

Some of its contributions to the city include the establishment of an Office of the Registrar of Companies, opening an Office of the Deputy Controller of Imports and Exports, setting up of an Inland Container Depot and the establishment of a Business Service Bureau, which happened to be the first of its kind in Tamil Nadu.

When K G Balakrishnan, Chairman of the renowned K G Group, took over as President in 1986, he gave a new fillip to the activities of the Chamber with his unbridled enthusiasm and dynamic leadership, by bringing in many young entrepreneurs and businessmen.

ICCIC is associated with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), New Delhi, since the time of its inception. It is also associated with the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASSOCHAM), Southern India Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) and Hindustan Chamber of Commerce (HCC). It also has contacts with international commercial organisations in Germany, the UK, USA, Canada and other countries.
