and companies, of which approximately 11% enjoy the
special membership status "Sustaining
Membership". In addition to that, a number of members (up to
the age of 40) have joined our Young BCCG programme. The
network consists of about 4000 personal addressees and we
also maintain contact with other European
British Chambers. The
chamber is the largest British Chamber in Europe.
Ten honorary BCCG Regional Committees support the BCCG and Young BCCG members
in Germany and the UK.
BCCG and its large British-German entrepreneural and institutional
network are first port of call for companies and professionals
seeking advice in British-German business and trade. The Chamber is a neutral platform for topics of interest to the BCCG members, co-operating partners and guests at events, in its publications and website.
For its services
to members and other interested parties, the chamber actively uses this network. The chambers'
extensive database of members as well as British firms and affiliates
doing business in Germany are key for these services.
