Welcome to the Somerset Chamber of Commerce
The latest issue of the Somerset Business Magazine looks forward to the year ahead and outlines the key issues and opportunities for the county.
Topics such as digital connectivity, transport infrastructure improvements, bridging the skills gap and Hinkley Point C are all high on the agenda, as emphasised by both CEO Dale Edwards and Somerset County Council Deputy Leader Cllr David Hall at the Chamber’s first event of the year. The future priorities and growth of Somerset were discussed at the briefing event, with a full write-up in this month’s magazine.
Other topics covered in this issue include a government overhaul of UKTI, the growing issue of cyber security, the cost of staff smoking to your business, and much more. Look out for your copy of the February Somerset Business Magazine.
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.
