The Chamber of Commerce of Bogota is an institution that has defined the development of the city and region and its history is closely linked to the economic, political, social and cultural events of this capital. It goes back to 1878 when a group of visionaries, formed by Jose, decided to promote the creation of companies, defend the interests of the city´s business owners and entrepreneurs and be an advisory and consulting body of the Government.
