Letter from the President, British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico

 Friends, Members and Future Members: Welcome to the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico’s Webpage!

It is an honour and a privilege to serve as President of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico over the next cycle. I want to congratulate my predecessor, Emilio Díaz and the former administration for their effort and excellent job done over the last two years.

As the new president, my objective will be to build over existing foundations and fortitudes, also to give continuity to the legacy we have had for over 95 years in Mexico. To with the leadership, service and tradition of quality that has characterized BritChaM for almost a century and continue harvesting achievements and successes.

One of my goals as president, is to have 500 members from various and diverse industries to the closing of this year. Not only I wish to have more companies and individual members at the Chamber, but also to continue nourishing and strengthening the current community. To offer quality programmes and to continue creating valuable networking opportunities. Mexico is a country in which networking is essential to sstablish, it is fundamental to create business ties and the Chamber is pleased to be an ideal platform to foster a bilateral commercial exchange.

This is a year with many challenges and changes ahead, not only nationally but also globally; which we will face promptly in the face of any scenario, with the enthusiasm and strength that distinguish us. I am very happy to announce that very soon the offices of the Chamber and the commercial area, the BritChaM Business Centre, will be consolidated as one from 1st April of the current year, where we will welcome and continue collaborating with you at Andrés Bello 10, 10th floor in Polanco. This step represents a strong move for BritChaM, which delights us and will give us the opportunity to innovate.

Moreover, I am looking to keep innovating constantly, bringing relevant and trustworthy content to the community through reports, events, seminars and our 11 Business Sector Groups; which are currently very active having as a main goal to continue growing day by day. 

The essence of BritChaM is to continue promoting the bilateral commerce and trade between the United Kingdom and Mexico, to provide tailor-made consulting services, satisfying the needs and commercial interests of our new, current and future members. Also, to continue position BritChaM, as one of the strongest European bilateral chambers in the country.

Thank you so much for being part of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico and continue to participate in this enthusiast, active and dynamic community. I look forward to collaborating with you during my cycle facing challenges, changes and to keep harvesting many successes together.

David Atherton
