Drawing from the philosophy of constancy of change, with the world economies constantly swaying to the sociopolitical changes, the role of Chambers of Industry and Commerce has become dynamic. The TNSC of FICCI rises to this challenge with utmost sincerity and commitment to the cause. Tucked away behind a serene canopy of green, the office serves as a crucial synapse between industry and the government.
