Trade Support 2

Supporting trade locally, nationally, and globally remains a key mission for every Accredited Chamber of Commerce.

We are proud of our network of more than 350 qualified specialists in the Chamber Network, who are on hand every working day to help business and international trade to flourish. Every Accredited Chamber provides local businesses with access to a range of services to support that aim.

In every city, town and county, Accredited Chambers of Commerce provide crucial support for businesses trading internationally. Across our network, we receive over 1,500 enquiries every week from businesses seeking advice.

Where can I go for trade support and advice?

When it comes to changes in how we trade with other nations, the BCC works with the government departments involved and provides advice, guidance and support. Like government, we want to ensure that whatever trade arrangements are made with a trade bloc or individual country have a positive impact on British businesses. Our team regularly meets with government ministers and officials at all levels, and help to arrange ministerial visits to business communities around the UK.

The BCC is uniquely placed to engage with business organisations across the globe through the World Trade Organisation, the World Customs Organisation and the World Chambers Federation, where the UK plays a leading role representing the interest of UK exporters and importers.

Businesses can also draw on our Global Business Network, who stand ready to provide a 'soft landing' for UK firms arriving in a trading location across the world.

The BCC produces a wide range of publications and research on trade. Our work focuses on the latest trends in international trade, and issues and markets important to UK businesses around the world.

Thanks to Chambers’ deep local roots and respected brand, we remain a crucial and trusted third party for businesses who want to expand overseas or bring components and goods into the UK.
