The West Sweden Chamber of Commerce is a private, politically-neutral organisation working to strengthen the region’s business community. The Chamber works to create growth and develop the future of West Sweden by helping companies do more and better business and by influencing political decisions. Its efforts have regional focus as economic growth is primarily affected by regional conditions before municipal and national ones.
