BackgroundThe FSE & CC emerges out of an amalgamation of the then Swaziland Chamber of Commerce & Industry to the Federation of Swaziland Employers in July 2003. The Federation of Swaziland Employers was initially formed in 1964 primarily to promote, protect and advance the mutual interests of employers and provide a forum for consultation and collaboration on all matters arising out of the relation between employers and employees. The Swaziland Chamber of Commerce & Industry, on the other hand can trace its origin as far back as 1916. The Chamber was established as a non-profit voluntary association with its main aim being to represent and defend the interests of its members in promoting, fostering trade, commerce & industry of all descriptions.
The Constitution vests power on the Board of Directors over various areas relevant to broadcasting the voice of business at a local and national level, striving for an economic and cultural environment that fosters business growth, economic development and job creation.
