The St Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry & Agriculture was founded in 1884 and is in fact the oldest organisation of its kind in St Lucia. It was originally known as the St Lucia Agriculture and Commercial Society. In 1945 the name was changed to reflect the emphasis of the times. It became known as the St Lucia Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. As recently as 1981, as more members began to explore the manufacturing and industrial sectors, it became known as the St Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry & Agriculture.
