The Chamber in the UK expands its international affiliations
As part of its plan to improve member services and attract new members, the Chamber has formed several new alliances over the last 6 months.
In March 2016 we joined the RCCP (Rede das Câmaras do Comércio Portuguesas) which is headquartered in Lisbon and networks all the Portuguese Chambers around the world together. This alliance will allow all the Chambers to help each other with successful blueprints for events and membership retention.
Moreover, at the Chamber’s Business in Portuguese conference at Bloomberg’s European HQ in London in June 2016, the Chamber also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the CE-CPLP (Confederação empresarial da Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa), which will allow us to forge new links with leading businesses from Portuguese-speaking countries who wish to access the UK market.

The Chamber was surprised by the UK’s recent Brexit vote, but we are keen to reassure all our members that the UK is open for business as usual and we are confident that, once this initial period of uncertainty has passed, much clearer information will be available.
In the coming weeks and months, the Chamber intends to gather together the ‘Brexit’ information that may affect our member companies and circulate it, either via events or regular briefing notes, to ensure that your business decisions regarding the UK will be made based on fact, not fiction. We are here to help and stand ready to answer any questions you may have.
