The Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce (檳州中华总商会), established in June 1903, was the first Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Malaya. It was one of the pioneer trade organization founded at the turn of the twentieth century in this region. In January 1946 the British Military Administration decided to end Penang’s duty-free status, together with the plan to break up the Straits Settlements and impose the Malayan Union, prompted the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce to lead a protest of Penang’s chambers of commerce.

 The Chamber is now one of the strongest commercial institutions in Malaysia in terms of membership and organisational and functional characteristic that is well recognised by both the public and private sectors.

 In 2003, the Registrar of Society of Malaysia (ROS) presented the Award Certificate of Excellent Society to the Chamber. The members of PCCC are from various business sectors, including enterprises, financial institutions, listed companies, housing and construction, garment and textiles, sole-agents and retailers.

This talk will be conducted by the President of the Penang Heritage Trust, Lim Gaik Siang, who is very familiar on the history, architecture and will share some early photos of this marvellous establishment.

Do catch this rare opportunity as PCCC opens its doors to PHT. It is closed to public on other days.

檳城古蹟信託會2016年深度導覽系列(二),由林玉裳講解(中、英語)

檳州中華總商會(萊特街3號, No.3, Lebuh Light, 10200 Penang.) , 2016年3月5日(星期六),下午三點半。

創辦於1903年的檳州中華總商會是新馬最早的華人商會,而這座在1928因該地段面向大海,其建築是同一位建築師續樂泰居之後的第二間“船舫”式的設計,獨具一格。

該建築因年久失修,於2014年進行修復,於2015年完成修復。修復後的大廈總面積約1萬8400平方尺,共三層樓,設有辦公室,12間精品酒店客房、餐廳、7間商業店鋪及屋頂花園等。

您可知道這建築是位華人 ?您可見過當初的設計及老照片 ?您可知道一部份早期的建築曾被炸毀 ?您可相知那一些早期的社會賢達是該商會的創辦人?

如果想更深了了解喬治市的文化遺產,請參加由檳城古蹟信託會主辦的深度導覽, 因部份的建築平時不對外開放(如精品酒店部份),不要錯過這難能可貴的機會 :
