British & Colombian Chamber of Commerce
The B&CCC is an independent, not-for-profit business organization that aims to build closer ties between the business communities of Colombia and the United Kingdom by promoting investment relations and bilateral trade between these two nations.
Since its foundation in 1996, the chamber's membership base has experienced a steady growth, mainly as a result of continuous efforts to offer useful services and organize innovative events. In the process, it has become quite diverse in terms of the sectors represented: oil & gas, financial services, manufacturing, agriculture, legal services, tourism, business and security consultancy.
How the Chamber operates
The Chamber is run by a volunteer Board of Directors composed mainly by representatives from our Emerald Members, the top category of membership, as well as representatives from the UK & Colombian Government officials. The Board of elected officers determine the Chamber's policies and nominate the chairman.
Ad hoc committees are set up from time to time to consider specific issues; this allows members to become actively involved and to apply their expertise to forwarding the organization's overall mission of forging closer business ties between the two nations.
The Chamber does not receive any government funding and therefore operates as a general business, raising funds from membership fees and fundraising activities throughout the year.
