The ACC was founded in 1923 as a non-profit organization to regulate and represent the interests of all trade firms in Amman and surrounding areas, and as one of the oldest Chambers of Commerce in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
The ACC has been intended to be an organization of a legal status and a public interest nature. Therefore, the ACC assumes a prominent position among Jordanian private corporations representing the private sector, as it makes relentless effort in promoting the role of Jordan's private sector in the national economy.
