British Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce
The British Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce (BBCC) was set up as a business support group in December 1991, aiming to:
- Promote, protect and strengthen bi-lateral trade and commerce between Bangladesh and the United Kingdom and between them and the European Community;
- Promote investment, joint ventures, research and development in both countries;
- Maintain close ties with traders both in the United Kingdom and in Bangladesh, including the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry and relevant government ministries.
BBCC is a not for profit membership organization which utilizes the membership fees and other income to support UK and Non Resident Bangladeshi Businesses across the world. BBCC has a dedicated Board of volunteer Directors and a small team of officers who have worked hard to make BBCC a successful brand in supporting the business community and therefore the wider community. However, there are a wide range of challenges facing BBCC including income generation/ funding, lack of overall business development, low membership and customer base, governance and skills.
