BCC launch Trade Manifesto for 2022

The Chamber of Commerce network has always been a champion of international trade and there is no doubt that any business that embraces exporting will be better off for it. It’s one of the reasons why more than 60% of Chamber members trade overseas compared to just 10% of all businesses in the UK.

It’s also because of the fantastic support Chambers can provide both in the UK and, through our Global Business Network, in more than 75 markets around the world. This capability to offer an end-to-end service for Chamber Members, whether they are starting out or looking to build their trade further, has always made our network unique.

But the world of trade has seen huge disruption over the past two years and more change is on the way. We now stand at a moment where we must seize this opportunity to be in the vanguard of a world-wide revolution in new technology, digital services and Net Zero innovations.

It is the aim of the British Chambers of Commerce to double the number of UK firms exporting and if we use the considerable expertise, knowledge, skills and networking ability at our disposal then we can truly make a difference to the future of our network and the UK economy.

That is why the BCC have published a new BCC Trade Manifesto setting out this offer and ambitions for the future of trade. They have also updated the BCC Trade Hub bringing together all the support and resources that businesses need to embrace exporting to overseas markets.
