About The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai 

The history of the British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai dates back to 1915, when it was first founded. Now more than 100 years on, as one of the oldest foreign Chambers still operating in China, the Chamber’s original ethos of helping each other in the interests of growing British trade with China, is as true today as it was 100 years ago.

By holding over 120 events every year, the Chamber offers a vast amount of information and is able to promote the exchange and sharing of expertise among its professional community. The large network to which we offer access to also assists members to raise their profile locally and rapidly expand their business contacts here in East China. Currently, the Chamber represents over 350 companies with around 1,500 cardholding members.

While business activities carried on in full swing, the Chamber also continued with its CSR projects. Through fundraising events such as the annual British ball, the Chamber raised over RMB 500,000 in 2017 for chosen charity projects.

In January 2017, the British Chamber Shanghai launched the UK-China Offshore Wind Hub. Operated by the Chamber, the Hub is a flexible, dynamic, low risk, cost-effective and professional means for UK companies to create business opportunities in China.
