The Forum of the Adriatic and Ionian Chambers of Commerce is a transnational, non-profit association linking the chambers of commerce of countries residing on both Adriatic and Ionian coasts: Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia, Greece and Albania.
The aim of the association, established in 2001, owing to the will and vision of the founding chambers of commerce, those of Ancona and Split, is to strengthen the synergies and opportunities for socio-economic development of the Adriatic and Ionian area
With the scope of achieving better coordination of its activities, the Forum identified topics of common interest from which six Workgroups were created: Agriculture, Environment, Women’s Entrepreneurship, Transports, Tourism and Fisheries/Aquaculture. Furthermore, a Workgroup on EU Project Management and the International Court of the Adriatic and Ionian Area were established.
The AIC Forum is one of the major promoters of the ambitious Adriatic and Ionian Macroregion project. This strategy represents a joint governance system that involves various participants, diverse politics and attributes present on the territory of the area, increasing the value of cultural heritage and the richness of diversities.
The Macroregion transforms the concepts of territorial cohesion, environmental protection, sustainable economic and social development into tangible results and it does so by utilising existent networks, without creating new structures. Those networks, in conjunction with the AIC Forum, form an organism involved in development, in the process of sustainable growth and in the dissemination of experiences and potentials present in the economic productivity of the Adriatic – Ionian area.
