The Gozo Business Chamber was founded by a public deed on 20 December 1999, to promote the common interests of business operators in Gozo.

Since its formation, the Chamber has already made several representations with the authorities on behalf of its members; collaboration agreements with the Gozo Tourism Association and the Malta Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise.

The Gozo Business Chamber also published unbiased educational material concerning the effects of European Union membership and forged contacts with overseas Chambers.

The Chamber is administered by a Council which is elected every two years and is made up of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations Officer, Membership Officer and other members representing the different sections as well as the Chief Executive Officer.

The Gozo Business Chamber is a member of the Network of Insular Chambers of Commerce of the European Union (INSULEUR) and a founder member of the Observatory of European Island Tourism (OTIE).
