ABOUT THE CHAMBER

The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore (BritCham) is an independent not-for-profit membership organisation supporting approximately 3,500 members from 320 member organisations, part of the British Chambers of Commerce Global Network and a leading member of the Britain in South East Asia network (BiSEA). Our members vary from startups and SMEs to global MNCs, spanning all sectors and industries. Approximately two-thirds of the network in Singapore are British nationals or those employed by an organisation headquartered in the UK.

The Chamber is a registered Society, led by an Executive Team, overseen by an elected Board of members and operating under a published Constitution. Our mission is to drive British business growth in Singapore, create opportunities for our members, facilitate industry knowledge sharing, and support exporters from the UK. This is achieved by working alongside Government, our partners and our engaged members to deliver services, committee participation, activities and opportunities throughout the year.

Within our services to the British business community, we focus on five broad themes - the Future of Trade (creating jobs and boosting economic growth in Singapore), the Future of Work (supporting talent and the enhancement of people to support business growth), Diversity & Inclusion (ensuring that rich and diverse workforces are working together to support business innovation and growth), Education & Learning (focusing on quality education and future skills that businesses will require), and sustainability through our Road to Net Zero campaign (encouraging businesses to do their part for a world that we all want to live in in the future). We also maintain a Covid-19 Information Hub resource.
