The chamber accepts companies and individuals as members which are from or have close ties to the EU. The main purpose of ECCIL is to represent the European business community in Laos and to offer services to members and non-members. Its principal objective is to promote and increase business between the Lao PDR and EU member states for their mutual benefit and for the benefit of its members. This includes, among others, the promotion of investment, raising the profile of the Lao PDR in the European business community and vice versa, and to promote linkages between Lao and European SMEs.
ECCIL and LNCCI have managed years of fruitful cooperation and decided to expand it, giving it a broader legal base. Among other plans, the two chambers will cooperate in certain development projects, in organising conferences and in promoting investment in the Lao PDR.
