The Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry Incorporated is Samoa’s National Private Sector Organization (NPSO).  It is an incorporated association of businesses and private sector organizations representing all areas of Samoa’s private sector.

The Chamber’s purpose is “to act as Samoa’s National Private Sector Organization that will promote the interests, well-being and growth of Samoa’s private sector at the national, regional and international levels to improve the economic and social well-being of the people of Samoa.”

The Chamber was originally formed in the early 1900s by the merchants of Apia. The organization was revised and took its present form in the 1970s. By December 2021, the Chamber has grown to 468 members representing different sectors of Samoa’s business community.

The Chamber’s role as Samoa’s NPSO works in partnership with four Private Sector Organizations (PSOs), which are also members of the Chamber, namely: Women in Business Development Inc. (WIBDI), Businesses of Salafai Association (BoSA), Samoa Association of Manufacturers and Exporters (SAME) and Samoa Hotel and Hospitality Association (SHHA).
