History Overview...

Lesotho Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), established in 1976 as a national and broadly based business association-open to all business activities, is the oldest non-profit aligned and independent constitution; its members come from all political backgrounds and affiliations, etc.
Since its establishment, LCCI has evolved from a purely representative and consultative body to a dynamic actor in socio-economic development of the country. Throughout its years of existence, it has constantly striven to carry out its fundamental mission of defending and promoting the vital interests of its members.
The LCCI mandate addresses all economic, social and political issues affecting the business community in one way or another. The chamber is the ‘voice of business’ and it ensures that this voice is heard where it matters to protect the interests of business.


Our Mandate

To address all economic, social and political issues affecting the business community.

Our Mission

To serve and promote the interests of the Lesotho business community by playing a leading role in the socio-economic development aspects of the Country.

Our Vision

To be a dynamic, effective, pro-active and multi-sectorial business chamber.


Our Core Values

  • Responsible and accountable conduct
  • Broad-based empowerment
  • We believe in Total Quality Culture and continuous improvements
  • Commitment to environmentally sustainable business
  • Commitment to ethical business conduct and integrity
  • Transparency and honesty and total anti-corrupt business practices


“ The Chamber is the ‘Voice of Business’ and therefore plays a critical role in the development and implementation of policies that affect the business community. With the understanding that, Business professionals are busy with the day-to-day running of their businesses and may find it difficult to constantly engage in public policy activities, the Chamber on behalf of our members, chips in to advocate for policies and legislation that contributes to the growth and prosperity of Lesotho. As “the protector of legitimate interests of business entities in Lesotho” it acts as a catalyst advocating for a conducive business environment. Membership of the Chamber is made up of corporate, associations, task forces, councils and the academia. This therefore, makes it a strong entity who’s opinions and views are highly sought after by the government, business leaders and media. ”
