Business Groups

The British Chamber Business Groups provide a platform for members to engage and connect within their professional sector and beyond. The group's core committees consist of 8 to 12 members driving event programme and content. Business group core committees also take an active interest in enlarging the member base. They are a vital and important pillar in delivering our mission. 

WHY JOIN A BUSINESS GROUP?

 
The British Chamber enjoys a reputation of being one of the most active in the Singapore business community. 
Our business groups enhance the Chambers policy of engagement, with each business group’s aim being to provide a cutting edge approach to bring about dialogue, change, improvement and influence with key people at industry and government level. This provides both specific benefits to members and allows for a more dynamic involvement and contribution from members.
