The British Chamber of Commerce is an independent membership organisation committed to strengthening the ties between the UK and Singapore. We have done so since 1954.
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.
For companies considering Singapore, or indeed the wider ASEAN region as a potential market, the Chamber offers a variety of services such as market/sector research, supporting with customer acquisition, partner identification, and webinars.
As you plan your visit, the Chamber can help to reduce costs through preferential partner rates from our members who are keen to support British businesses, introduce you to connections in banking, funding, corporate services, insurance and other professional service sectors, and help to secure those important meetings. After your visit, the team will follow up to find out how you are progressing and provide additional support if needed. We provide a suite of services including virtual and in-person trade missions, introductions, partner matching, market research and event planning.
For those who have made the leap into the market, we offer extensive membership benefits including a full calendar of activities throughout the year with opportunities to connect and collaborate with our members. The Chamber team is available to help as a point of resource, connection with Governments of the United Kingdom and Singapore, introductions, networking, learning and profile-raising. Since the pandemic outbreak in 2020, we have launched a range of digital activities including what has become Singapore’s No1 non-profit podcast channel according to Apple Podcasts (‘BritCham Singapore’) and on-demand webinars available on our website and YouTube channel for those unable to join live.
Whether you are just starting your research into ASEAN, have established your business and looking for growth, are keen to build connections to government, or looking for brand exposure and employee development, the Chamber is here to support your needs at every stage of your journey.
Ultimately, our entire network benefits from our leading position as a strong and credible voice for our members and British businesses in Singapore and beyond.

“For our brand FUEL10K the British Chamber of Commerce in Singapore has been exceptionally supportive. Their organisation during our 3-day market visit was informed, energetic and second to none. Follow on support and guidance once we returned to the UK was invaluable. From that single trip we now have significant trading relationships and a great base to grow our brand throughout Singapore and beyond. Thank you to the team. I would highly recommend the British Chamber of Commerce to any UK business who are serious about gaining a firm foothold in the region.”
“Tuk Tuk Chai was selected by the Department for International Trade (DIT) London to attend a trade mission in Singapore in July 2019. The level of support we received from the Chamber was absolutely great and invaluable, enabling us to meet key contacts of interest during our carefully organised and well-planned retail tour which resulted in us signing up a deal whilst still on the Mission! The whole Mission was very professionally managed, engaging and insightful. They also arranged a networking reception which was a great occasion to showcase our products to potential buyers and engage with them.”
“The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore do a fantastic job at promoting British interests overseas and delivering opportunities to network and communicate with a dynamic business community, including many British expats in this market; as a British company who focuses on working with British expats, this is hugely important to us. Our relationship, which has been strong for over a decade, has helped to deliver a range of different programmes for members. Over the years, we've sponsored the Breakfast Club series, their Annual Economic Briefing, the Back to Work networking events, Rugby events, and we are very excited to be headline sponsors of the Great British Ball since 2018. Members of our team are actively involved in their committees, including their Financial and FinTech group and sitting on their Board, so we feel highly involved in the process as a sponsor. Our involvement with BritCham has grown over the years and we feel that the partnership with them is unique and really supports our business in Singapore. They provide an innovative and rewarding platform from which The Fry Group can build its brand in this market and be associated with a diverse and relevant network.”
