In 1985 when imports into India were liberalised a small group of people formed a forum for imports. In the year 2004 and this forum was converted into Indian Importers Association. This was done because the Government in 2004 had open up the economy and all the products were allowed to be imported. In 2015, the Indian Importers Association was converted into a full fledged Chamber of Commerce & Industry to cater to the needs of various businessmen, manufacturers , service providers etc. Today the Chamber is having independent chapter:
a) IICCI Bangladesh Ltd.
b) IICCI EU, Milan, Italy
c) IICCI USA Inc.
By the year 2020, it will be having total 18 independent chapters spread all over the world.
