About the MGCC

First arriving in 1986 as a delegate office of the German Associations of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), MGCC is now a modern and flexible service organization and a strong and reliable partner for its members and clients with a widespread, result-oriented range of services and a successful track record. MGCC is supported by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy based on a resolution of the German parliament, the Bundestag. The MGCC have been active in Malaysia since 1991, determining their role as a service provider, membership organisation and voice of the German industry in the country.

The Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC), or AHK Malaysia as it is known in Germany, is part of the world-wide network of German chambers with 140 offices in 92 countries and another 79 regional chambers in Germany with more than 3-million-member companies and businesses. Under the service brand “DEinternational” the chambers assist German companies with a wide range of services to establish themselves on foreign markets. MGCC is the Official Representative of German Industry and Trade in Malaysia with excellent relations to governments and its authorities, to business organizations and to industry both in Malaysia and in Germany.

German Chambers abroad fulfil three main tasks:

  • Official Representation of German Companies: The MGCC represents the interests of the German economy vis-à-vis politics and administration in the host country. This function commits the German chambers to neutrality and objectivity.
  • Member Organisations: For their approximately 51,000 member companies worldwide, the German chambers advocate and provide a network platform in bilateral trade. The tasks undertaken are to maintain, intensify and improve foreign trade relations between the host country and Germany.
  • Service Providers to Companies: Through the AHK service brand DEinternational, companies worldwide receive professional advice and support to successfully build and expand their overseas business operations forming a bridge between the markets.
