The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is a dynamic, high-profile and independent business network, with chambers across the UK. Local chambers sit at the heart of the community, working with businesses of all sizes, and representing all sectors. The BCC mission is to make the chamber network an essential part of growing business by sharing opportunities, knowledge and expertise.
Business West works closely with the BCC policy and lobbying team. Through this relationship we can ensure that local business interests are represented in Westminster, Whitehall and in Brussels. Working together with BCC provides our local policy team with excellent access to national decision-makers to influence policy decisions, including economic policy, influencing the course of new legislation that has an impact on the business community and giving firms a voice in Parliament and the media.
