BRITCHAM - The British Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Brazil

Britcham is a national non-profit association, whose aim is to increase British-Brazilian relations, promote debates and act in the development of business in the British and Brazilian communities, providing a forum to increase bilateral trade, investments and services.

Founded in 1916, Britcham has offices in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul and has a proud history in the promotion of businesses between Brazil and Great Britain in all sectors of commerce and industry. New members - either companies or individuals - are always welcome whether they be based in Brazil or in the United Kingdom, and the Chamber is able to offer them a wide range of benefits .

Perhaps the principal benefit for most members is the chance to meet and network with other members and with visitors and guests of the Chamber at the regular events held in the three Branches. Main events usually have a prominent British or Brazilian business or political speaker, and there are also regular seminars on general business topics and the events organised by the various specialist committees. We have active Committees for Ethics and Social Responsibility, Trade & International Investment, Legal, Tax, Environment, Health, Tourism, Business Support Group, Energy, Marketing, Arbitration, Insurance and Reinsurance, CEOs Breakfast and Young Britcham.

The Chamber publishes the Britain Brasil magazine, has a lively website and publishes an Annual Directory. Our most well-known publication Doing Business in Brazil (the only book of its kind in English) which is updated annually, has now a "twin" called Doing Energy Business in Brazil. For further information please contact us through the enquiry form or our contact number.

Britcham announces growth and a positive outlook for UK-Brazil relations

The first half of 2011 was a highly successful one for us at Britcham. We hosted important visits from high-level UK government officials to help establish broader and better opportunities for business relations between the UK and our members and Brazilian businesses.

We are pleased to announce that our membership grew 10% during the period, clearly in response to our efforts to enhance and develop continually innovative initiatives. An example was the Brazilian Business Forum, a major success in its first edition.

Another memorable event was UK Foreign Office Minister Jeremy Browne's visit to Brazil, an important milestone in UK-Brazil relations.

Significant opportunities also lie ahead in the second half of the year, including the Joint Economic and Trade Committee meeting in September, involving the public and private sectors of Brazil and the UK. This will be followed by the election of our new Administrative Council.

The outlook for Britcham is brighter than ever. We are currently engaged in talks with the UK Embassy to jointly plan and execute a "UK Season" of British culture, sporting and business in Brazil. In this 18-month programme of events, activities, meetings and business rounds between the two countries, we will showcase the best the UK has to offer to Brazilian businesses and citizens at large.

Every day has seen us further in our mission, with broadened industry-specific initiatives, stronger committees, and closer relations with sister organisations and governments. Britcham, our staff, our events and our website are at last prepared to meet our members’ needs.

Make yourselves at home and participate!
