The establishment of the Chambers of Commerce in Western countries dates back to 1700. As the equivalence of this kind of organization initiated by the West on these dates, there are Ahiish, guild and tradesmen organizations in the Turks.
In our country, this kind of organization dates back to 1876. Later on 13 / Cemaziyelahir / 1923 with a decree of the Assembly-i Trade and Agriculture councils in cities and towns began to be established. According to the decision taken by the Ministry of Commerce (Ministry of Commerce), the establishment of a Chamber of Commerce in the provinces of Trabzon, Adana, Ankara, Edirne, Hadarendigar and Erzurum in the first degree Selanik, Izmir, Syria, Aleppo, Baghdad provinces and second degree was reported.
When the Trade Association was beneficial, the chairman and members were elected in Edirne for the establishment of the Chamber of Commerce in 1301/1885 and submitted to the Ministry of Commerce for approval.
It is understood that Edirne Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Edirne Chamber of Commerce and Industry) was established in the Edirne salami (dated from 1301 and 1939). In the 1319/1901 salary, the names of the members of the Edirne Chamber and members of the Commercial Court are included. We could not find any explanation in this 22 years until this date. In fact, the fact that the Balkan War, the Dardanelles and the Battle of Cihan I during the years was the reason we did not find any article about this organization because of the ruins and the migrations.
On September 27, 1341 (1925), the Chamber of Commerce and Industry ordered the establishment of the Chambers of Commerce and the establishment of the Chambers of Commerce with the law that required the official and compulsory member. Thus, with the proposal of this law, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been obliged to become a member of Chambers of Commerce and Industry with the acceptance of Chambers which have not been organized for 40 years as a professional organization. The establishment of Edirne Chamber of Commerce and Industry was realized with a law and started to work in the city. Our Chamber, which was established as second in our country after Istanbul, will continue its desire to make it in the future without any disruption until now. Our chamber has 20 professional committees.
