Message from the Chairman

As the Chairman of BritCham, I would like to warmly welcome you all to the Chamber.

This past year has been a period of transformation for BritCham, but also one of continued growth and development. Our strengthened partnership with the British Embassy and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has meant a deeper engagement with the British business community in Cambodia and we look to continue to raise our profile as the forum for British business here.  

We have dedicated a lot of time this past year to fostering relationships and building strategic partnerships locally and regionally. We believe our members benefit as we look to widen networks and create connectivity that might otherwise not yet exist. We are currently developing closer ties with British Alumni Associations in Cambodia and look forward to connecting returning students from the UK to our members. We continue to reinforce our ties with our regional partners as part of the Britain in Southeast Asia (BiSEA) network.

We also continue to find ways to bring value to our members and build a growing and inclusive network. We are a small but dynamic Chamber and this year we will look to find ways to engage our members further in Chamber activities. Our new website has for the first time, an online membership directory, allowing members to profile their business and connect with each other. We will further be focusing on encouraging the development of a enabling business environment in Cambodia by developing Business Groups which we hope will provide a forum for our members to engage with each other within their sectors to discuss issues affecting them and to jointly find solutions. We have just launched our first Business Group on Online Innovations & Technologies (e-commerce). Finally, we are excited to be growing our network nationally having recently organised a successful joint event in Siem Reap where we connected with British individuals and businesses there. We will continue to develop our network there in the coming year.
