In order to not only survive but strive for excellence, the Chamber would have to undergo continuous evolution. It would have to reposition itself and realign its activities in tune with the changes taking place so as to ensure better, quicker, more value-added and customized services to the industry in particular and to its members in general. The key to this would be effective change management, innovation and proactive development of strategies that would help the nation spearhead in becoming a global superpower.
