The Chambers History
On the 9th April 1886, the Royal Decree was published which authorised the creation of Chambers of Commerce in Spain. Plans, were therefore, initiated in Cartagena for the establishment of a Chamber of Commerce Constitution. Many meetings were held in the Assembly rooms of the Town Hall during the months of May and June of that same year 1886, under the Presidency of D. Fransisco Lizano Ordiz and as acting Secretary, D. Isidoro Martinez Rizo. In the final meeting of the organising Committee, on the 30th June 1886, it was agreed to send an invitation to those people who were eligible, under the necessary conditions, to become part of the Chamber of Commerce and to form a General Assembly.
That same General Assembly took place on the 11th June 1886, in the Assembly room of the town hall, under the Presidency of D. Francisco Lizano Ordiz and the acting Secretary D. Isidoro Martinez Rizo. The same Assembly initiated an act, which bears the number 1, which can be viewed in the Act Book of this Corporation, in which the birth of Constitution the Chamber of Commerce took place.
The Constitutional Act, which was taken in the aforementioned document, took the following form:
- Governing Bodies
- Structure and Organization
- Chambers of Spain
