Trade Support

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

The Chamber Network has over 350 qualified specialists, who are on hand every working day to help business and international trade to flourish.

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?

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.
