Welcome to the Greater Birmingham Commonwealth Chamber of Commerce (GBCCC) the tenth division of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC), offers a membership-based international gateway for firms wishing to develop bilateral trade opportunities in Commonwealth countries.

We believe that the Commonwealth represents a largely untapped market, and one which has been overshadowed by the UK’s relationship with the European Union. Currently, the EU accounts for 44 per cent of all UK exports, while Commonwealth countries make up only nine per cent.

The new trade initiative is designed to help members develop trade links with Commonwealth countries and includes a major events programme focusing on Commonwealth knowledge transfer and trading opportunities.

The GBCCC, whose founder patrons are Aston University Birmingham, also promotes local businesses to Commonwealth countries through its connections with overseas High Commissions and Consulates in the UK, British diplomatic posts overseas and British Chambers of Commerce overseas.
