The only official Chamber of Commerce representing the interests of Azerbaijan and Britain.
Capitalising on the already strong bond that exists between the two countries, the Chamber facilitates and promotes the business interests of its members in the UK and Azerbaijan.
The BAZCCI creates opportunities and connects people to assist members in promoting and developing their activity within the British-Azerbaijani business community. The Chamber has developed a strong network of public and private partners both in Azerbaijan and in Britain. We are proud members of COBCOE (Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe), which significantly increases the network of potential business partners to any Chamber member. Founded in 1973, COBCOE is an independent non-profit organisation representing 40 British Chambers of Commerce in 37 countries across Europe, giving a voice to about 10,000 businesses for all sectors of trade and industry.
The BAZCCI has a close working relationship with the State Chamber of Commerce & Industry in the Republic of Azerbaijan, as well as with other European and UK based Chambers. The BAZCCI has also forged strong relationships with UKTI and the British Chambers of Commerce.
The goal of a Chamber of Commerce is to promote the business interests of its members in the local or national area. In general, this promotion may be done through networking events, seminars, member-to-member offers and advertising - among other things. Members join a Chamber for several reasons, in order to promote their business (or themselves) to an area they otherwise would not have a foothold in, to strengthen their current market position through contacts, to expand into an area of business they know very little about. And for many other reasons.
A multilateral (or in the case of the BAZCCI a bilateral) Chamber is different in that it promotes companies (and individuals) from different countries with specific interests in a specific country. In the case of a bilateral Chamber the promotion is focused solely between the businesses (and individuals) of two countries.
