Private Enterprise Federation
The Private Enterprise Federation (PEF) is a non-profit, non-political, autonomous institution and a company limited by guarantees under the Ghana Companies Code, Act 179. The Federation was established in 1994 as the apex institution to forge consensus and provide the leadership voice for advocacy on the initiative of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), Ghana Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI), Ghana Employers’ Association (GEA) and the Federation of Associations of Ghanaian Exporters (FAGE) with the support of USAID.
Ghana Chamber of Commerce & Industry
The Ghana Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI) is an association of business operators, firms and industries with interests spanning every sector of private enterprise in Ghana. The Chamber, as an advocacy organization, was established with the prime objective of promoting industrial and commercial interests in the country. The Chamber was established following the amalgamation of the then existing Chambers in the country.
Ghana Chamber of Mines
The Ghana Chamber of Mines is the main minerals industry association in Ghana. The Chamber represents the collective interests of companies involved in mineral exploration, production and processing in Ghana. Its activities are entirely funded by its member-companies which produce over 90 per cent of the Ghana's mineral output. The Chamber has represented the industry's interests since 1928.
Ghana Employers’ Association
The Ghana Employers' Association (GEA) is a national employers' organisation whose membership comprises enterprises operating in all sectors of the economy. After Independence in 1957, workers were organised under a central trade union and given powers under the Industrial Relations Act, 1958 to negotiate, enforce collective agreements and defend their interests in all establishments. It therefore became not only logical but also imperative that employers should come together to enhance and protect their interests as well as provide a forum for consultation among themselves and share experiences, hence the GEA was formed in 1959.
