BCCG VALUE & CSR

How will you manage your British/German business ambitions in the current uncertainty? 


Why we jointly should take care:

Regardless of the Brexit discussion, in 2017 the business volume between the United Kingdom and Germany increased by 1% to a total volume of 180 bn Euro. 

About  2,500 German firms with around 400,000 employees do business in the United Kingdom. More than 1,200 British firms operate with around 220,000 employees in Germany. 

Besides the pure figures, we believe it is more important than ever before to foster international contacts and friendships between the United Kingdom, Germany and beyond.

In summary; whatever the Brexit will bring in terms of change, the British/German business relationship remains crucial. 

For the United Kingdom. For Germany. For you.

How will you manage your UK/German business ambitions in the new environment? 

How we can help:

In a world of accelerating complexity, volatility and disruption, businesses, organisations and individuals are looking for information, guidance and beneficial relation-ships to deal with their strategic and operational challenges. 

The British Chamber of Commerce in Germany is continually identifying relevant issues, as we bring together experts, public bodies and members to help them address and solve their major concerns. 

It is our genuine belief, that economic prosperity and mutual respect of cultures requires an ongoing open and direct cross-border dialogue.

The British Chamber of Commerce in Germany is helping you to meet your aspirations. We foster businesses, organisations and individuals cross-border.
