Chamber International has worked closely with the ABCC since its launch in 1975 to help give exporters strong links with one of the UK’s leading organisations for promoting bilateral trade and investment between Britain and the Arab countries.

Tim Bailey says: “I’m absolutely thrilled to accept the award not just on behalf of Chamber International but also our clients who trade with the Arab world and have benefitted over the years from the strong links we’ve built with the Arab British Chamber of Commerce.”

Chamber International’s close association with ABCC has helped it to stay at the forefront of developments and opportunities in the Arab countries. 

Awards were presented to ten organisations that have supported ABCC since its formation among them UK Export Finance, the government department that provides trade finance and insurance to exporters, Europe Arab Bank, British Chambers of Commerce and London-based Arabic international newspaper Asharq al-Awsat.
