In western countries, founding of commerce chambers dates back to 1700s. During this period, Turks had ahi-order, guilds and vendor community that equivalent to commerce chambers.

Chamber-type organization can be traced back to 1876. The era of establishing Councils of Commerce and Agricultre started, by the ordinance dated 13 Jumada al-Thani, 1923. Ministry of Commerce conveyed the establishment of commerce chambers in following provinces:  importanly; Thessaloniki, Smyrna, Syria, Aleppo, Baghdad,  less importantly;  Trebizond,  Adana, Ankara, Adrionaple, Hüdavendigar.

Seeing that Community of Commerce turned out to be helpful, requisition for establishment of a commerce room in Edirne submitted to Ministry of Commerce in 1885. In 1901’s annual register, members of Edirne Chamber and Commerical Court included. Due to Balkan War, Dardanelles Campaing, World War I., destruction and immigrations, there is no entry ‘till 1923.

With the ‘’Regulation of Commerce and Industry Chambers’’ dated September 27, 1925, competents of trade and industry were required to be legal and mandatory members of chambers and establishment of commerce rooms has started. That regulation enabled chambers, which were not able to be organized for 40 years, to be accepted as professional organizations. Edirne Chamber of Commerce and Industry established with a law and started its duty within the city. Our chamber, second chamber to be established after Istanbul, will sustain its’ will to comply with dealers and industry with its’ technological and modern services. Our chamber has 20 professional committee.
