The British Chamber of Commerce of Cambodia (BritCham Cambodia) was founded as the British Business Association of Cambodia in 1995 by Senaka Fernando MBE. In 2013, it was officially registered as a Chamber of Commerce with the Cambodian government. The Chamber is also a founding member of the European Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia (EuroCham Cambodia)
In accordance with the Chamber's Constitution, BritCham 'aims to provide a forum for British Business people having an interest in Cambodia to meet together in a spirit of friendship and cooperation for mutual benefit and with a view to fostering good commercial and social relations with our Cambodian counterparts and the community at large.' The Chamber is not however, exclusive to British business people. We welcome all individuals with an interest in the UK and Cambodia. The Chamber currently has over 100 corporate and individual UK, international and national members.

In order to fulfill this, the core activities of the Chamber are:
Membership: supporting our current members and encouraging new members to join. We have an online Membership Directory where full details of our members and businesses can be found.
Events: organising business-focused events that give our members an opportunity to network and that tackle topical issues facing the business community. We also look to organise social events that bring the British community and friends together and promoting British culture.
Trade promotion: Working in partnership with Department for International Trade (DIT) and the British Embassy in Cambodia, we promote bilateral trade and investment between the UK and Cambodia.
Business Services: In 2015, the Chamber signed an agreement with UKTI (migrating to DIT in 2016) and the British Embassy to launch the 'Overseas Business Network Initiative' (OBNi) in Cambodia. The initiative continues as 'Export is Great' and aims to provide advice and assistance on behalf of DIT to UK companies seeking to do business in Cambodia.
Policy engagement: With a view to ensuring an enabling environment to do business in Cambodia, our Board is member-driven and aims to tackle topical issues affecting the business community. We provide forums for our members to engage with each other.
Regional connectivity: We facilitate our members with a strong network of British Chambers in Southeast Asia (BiSEA). We further utilise this network to reach out to UK companies in the region doing and seeking to do business in Cambodia.
