History of Chamber

In year 1994 the Malaysian community based in Beijing set up an informal association with the intention of facilitating opportunities for networking among Malaysians and friends from local communities. This association was unofficially named MAYCHAM Beijing. This team of enthusiastic volunteers worked towards bringing legitimacy and legal status for its organization. Its long held wish became a reality. MAYCHAM Beijing became MAYCHAM China.

In September 2004, MAYCHAM China, The Malaysian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China, was officially approved by the Chinese authority (the “Foreign Chamber Management Provisional Regulation of the People’s Republic of China) in Beijing.

Two years later MAYCHAM Shanghai Chapter was formed to support MAYCHAM China’s activities in Shanghai and the provinces of Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui.

The pioneers of MAYCHAM in Beijing and Shanghai work closely with each other. Together with the Malaysian Embassy the pioneers promote and strengthen its role and relevance as a Chamber in China fast changing business landscape.
