British Chamber of Commerce Singapore

The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore is an independent membership organisation committed to helping strengthen the ties between the UK and Singapore. We have done so since 1954.

Whether you are just starting your research into ASEAN by scoping the market opportunities in Singapore, have established your business and seeking growth, building connections to the UK Government, or looking for brand exposure and employee development opportunities, the Chamber is here to support your needs at every stage of your journey.

With a full calendar of activities throughout the year including events, publications and opportunities to collaborate with our members, the Chamber team is available to help as a point of resource, introductions, networking, learning and profile-raising.

Our goal is to deliver Member Value through the services we offer that all work towards supporting our members in achieving your business objectives and aligning with our Mission of Building Networks, Connecting Businesses, and Creating Opportunities.

All benefit from our leading position as a strong and credible voice for our members and British businesses in Singapore and beyond.

About the Event

We are delighted to welcome the return of in-person events to our calendar with our first Leaders in Business Lunch event, limited in capacity and held with safe management measures in place.

In this event, attendees will hear directly from H.E. Kara Owen on the latest trade developments from the UK, including the CPTPP application, the UK-EU Trade & Cooperation Agreement and UK-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (UKFTA), and looking ahead the UK's ambitions for a Digital Economy Agreement with Singapore and ASEAN engagement.

Following these updates, an open discussion moderated by BritCham President Richard Warburton will continue, providing an opportunity for the High Commissioner to hear from our audience on these topics.

With thanks to our Leaders in Business Lunch series partner, St. James's Place Wealth Management.

A three course Shangri-La lunch, teas and coffees will be served.
