As part of the British Chambers of Commerce’s annual Chamber Business Awards 2022, the team at the British Chamber of Commerce in China, Beijing are celebrating after being crowned the International Chamber of the Year.
The Chamber Business Awards, now in its 19th year, is one of the showpieces of the business calendar, highlighting the role that Chambers play in assisting firms to deliver growth and prosperity. The awards provide a brilliant opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the Chamber Network, and the vital support Chambers provide to businesses.
Judges said the Chamber’s strong evidence of their response to Covid and the support it offered to businesses during the pandemic made them stand out from the five shortlisted International Chambers. They also provided evidence of a strong commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion by going above and beyond to offer resources such as unconscious bias training.
Sarah Howard, Chair of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said:
“The British Chamber of Commerce in China have demonstrated an incredible dedication to their member businesses throughout the pandemic, operating in a very challenging environment with the unique complexity of Covid measures in their local market. The Chamber have also been strong advocates for their members, and the change they have brought about is evidenced by their impact on policy.”
