About the ABCC
The Arab-British Chamber of Commerce is a not-for profit membership organisation established in 1975 under the General Union of Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture for the Arab Countries.
The Chamber has a unique function in the promotion of bilateral trade and investment between Britain and the Arab countries. To achieve this, we work in close co-operation with government ministries, official trade and investment bodies, Arab diplomatic missions in London, the British Chambers of Commerce, the League of Arab States, leading Arab businesses and Chambers of Commerce in the Arab world.
Friendship Through Trade
الــتــجــارة طــريــق الــصــداقــة
The Chamber has a proud record of service in the promotion of Arab-British trade and bilateral cooperation. Over the decades its reputation for reliable and efficient service has grown considerably as the Chamber has been able to make a major contribution towards the strengthening of Arab-British trade and economic relations. The Chamber remains committed to the aspirations that are summed up in its founding principle encapsulated in its motto “friendship through trade”.
Over the years the Chamber’s reputation has enormously increased and it is now the leading business support organisation in the UK for the promotion of Arab British trade and advancement of commercial relations. The Chamber’s work has been significantly eased and enhanced by its close co-operation with Arab businesses and official Arab bodies, particularly the League of Arab States and its specialised agencies, the Arab diplomatic missions located in London, the Chambers of Commerce in existence throughout the Arab world at a federal, national and local level, as well as other Arab-Foreign chambers.
Our mission is to be the business partner of choice for all companies looking to make the most of the opportunities that emerge from the thriving bilateral trade and commercial relationship enjoyed by Britain and the Arab World.
It is our belief that Arab-British cooperation has the potential to unlock substantial commercial opportunities. It is because of this vision that our mission is to assist businesses in their efforts to maximise the potential earnings in these regions by offering services that are crucial to conducting business in the Arab and British markets.
