Welcome to the Somerset Chamber of Commerce
In the July issue of the Somerset Business Magazine…
This month’s Somerset Business Magazine includes feedback from the Somerset Chamber and British Chambers of Commerce following the EU referendum result on 24th June. The importance of providing economic stability and of clarifying the next steps and timelines is highlighted by both organisations as being crucial for businesses at this uncertain time.
Elsewhere in the July 2016 issue, CEO Dale Edwards highlights some of the issues around skills and infrastructure that come to the fore over the summer months. Skills provision is a key topic this month, with exciting updates regarding Bridgwater College, Somerset College and a new National College for Nuclear. There’s plenty of good news from Chamber members too, along with information about the Somerset Business Awards, the new ‘Glass Box’ facility for start-ups and SMEs, and much more…
This month's magazines are currently hitting desks and will be with you very soon...
At its core, the Somerset Chamber is a membership-based business organisation that represents and works collaboratively with the Somerset business community to supports the growth of the Somerset economy.
Celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2015, we’ve gone from strength to strength as an organisation and, thanks to strong links with town chambers across the county, we now represent more than 2,000 businesses across the diverse economy of Somerset.
Our member businesses are at the heart of everything we do and through our close relationship with the British Chambers of Commerce (we are one of only five accredited Chambers in the South West and 52 in the whole of the UK), we make sure that the voice of the Somerset business community is heard at all levels of government.
Our work includes lobbying for high-speed broadband connectivity; campaigning for improvements to transport infrastructure; developing supply chain opportunities such as the Hinkley C Supply Chain project; working with members to ‘Bridge the Gap’ between education and employment; and promoting the opportunities around international trade to Somerset businesses.
