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 for the second year. Our mission is to represent the business interests of our British, Mexican and international members, and to be a platform from which new partnerships and business opportunities are created amongst our community.

 

As current president, my goal is to continue to promote this activity, deliver greater value to our members, and develop prestigious events and seminars to encourage current and future BritChaM members to participate in Chamber activity and benefit from the opportunities it presents. I collaborate closely with members of the Board and former presidents; together we address the challenges and situations our community faces on a daily basis, as a way of focusing on bringing greater value to your membership.

 

This year, Chamber activity keeps increasing, the BritChaM Business Centre is active and supporting our fellow British companies in establishing in Mexico. Through our events, seminars, Business Sector Groups and reports, we promote the commercial interests of our members. We also offer high quality programmes, creating great networking opportunities for the membership. Mexico is a country in which networking is vital and we proudly build an ideal platform from which to network and exchange business opportunities among our members. As a result, so far this year, we have more than 461 members from a wide array of sectors (and counting!).

BritChaM is now more dynamic than ever, we continue to work to renew our goals to constantly raise the bar higher and offer more and better services to our members. Today, our website reflects our efforts. The site’s innovative design will have improved content, ensuring an experience that we believe you will enjoy and benefit from.

Last year marked the 95th anniversary of the Chamber, promoting bilateral cooperation between Mexico and the United Kingdom. We are extremely grateful for your participation in the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico and for all these years of doing business together. I look forward to continuing our huge success, sowing the seeds of innovation and receiving support from our partners and the community.

 

Kind regards,

Ing. Emilio J. Díaz Romero.
