What does this mean for ABAC®?
The guidance which the BMCC provides through its trade services, industry advocacy and networking events are facets which ABAC® consider crucial within our permeation of the Malaysian markets. BMCC’s industry advocacy is most definitely of value as through ABAC®’s personal market research, it was found that there is unquestionably a gap amid the government and industry that ABAC® would like to further understand and learn how to navigate in hopes of facilitating both the BMCC’s mission statement as well as their own. Being a member of the BMCC means further knowledge for ABAC® which is always an objective for our organisation.
Established in 1963, the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) has been driven by the sole ordinance of advancing bilateral trade relations between the United Kingdom and Malaysia. Even tracing back to the 16th century, Britain and Malaysia are known to have shared a long history of diplomatic ties and successful trade relations. The BMCC is a part of this history.
Over the past five decades, the BMCC has been a catalyst in providing businesses with networking events, branding & exposure, trade services and industry advocacy.
With a certified accreditation by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) network across the United Kingdom, the principles upheld at the BMCC are continually updated in assurance of living up to the global standards set by the BCC accreditation system. The BMCC is also a member of the BiSEA (Britain in Southeast Asia) network, a group of ten British Chambers and Business Councils across the Southeast Asian region aimed at developing effective relationships between British Chambers of Commerce within ASEAN to further facilitate business opportunities for their members.
Today, the BMCC has firmly rooted itself as one of Southeast Asia’s most prolific Chambers; not only that but members of the BMCC include some of the largest exporters of produce, manufacturing, and services from the United Kingdom, as well as some of the most influential Malaysian companies that have shaped the nation’s economic landscape.
