Journey of IRCCI

IRCCI-Indo Russian Chamber of Commerce & Industry is the most active and recognized chamber of commerce in India with Russia. Celebrating successful 25 years, IRCCI traces its root to Soviet era days and more precisely pre-independence days of India. Having started the journey as Friends of Soviet Union, the association slowly transformed itself to a fully functional chamber during the 80’s Post Soviet Union, the chair and board members decided to convert the functioning of the IFCUS into a chamber of commerce and industry. Thus on date 1993 IRRCI was inaugurated by the then Governor of Tamilnadu.

Since the inception in 1993, IRCCI has successfully helped various business entities both in India and Russia enhance their trade. IRCCI is also the pillaring force in elevating the cultural and social relationship between both countries.
