Business West receives parliamentary congratulations from the Prime Minister herself for winning the Best Job Creation and Business Development project at this year’s World Chambers Competition in Sydney.

The project aims to maximise International Trade to benefit businesses in the South West of England. The award is in recognition of achieving almost £0.5bn worth of additional export sales and creating nearly 4000 new jobs in the region. 

The launch of our International Trade Centre was instrumental in helping Business West to achieve a 40% increase in our website traffic, 250% more potential first-time exporters using our services, and our social media channels saw more engagement than ever before.

In the letter Mrs May acknowledged the magnitude of the win, writing, 

‘With over 50 applications from 27 countries, the fact that Business West Chambers of Commerce was only one of five Chambers to be honoured at this prestigious event makes your award even more special.

Please accept my congratulations on your win and my best wishes for many more years of success.’

Today was a day of double delight as we have also been invited to go to the House of Commons to accept yet another award in recognition of our International Trade services from the Enterprising Britain Award (EBA).

The sky’s the limit for our International Trade Centre!
