Chambers of commerce can also include economic development groups, as well as tourism and visitors bureaus. There are basically two models worldwide, 'compulsory' or 'continental', those which companies of a certain area are obliged to belong to. This happens in most countries of EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain). Their main tasks are Foreign Trade Promotion, Training and General Services to companies. They also have a consultive function. This means that Administration must consult chambers whenever a new law related industry or commerce is proposed. Non-compulsory models exist in Anglo-saxon countries like USA, UK.
The Chamber holds regular meetings covering a wide variety of subjects and social functions. The Chamber has sub-committees covering roads, planning and car parking, membership and services to members, social, press and public relations and town centre management.
