The Israel-Britain Chamber of Commerce (IBCC) is a non-profit organisation, facilitating and encouraging trade, investment and business relations between Israel and the United Kingdom. As Israel’s most senior bi-national chamber, our staff has extensive personal contacts in both countries with leaders in the public and private sectors.
Annual bilateral trade regular exceeds the US$3 billion mark. Commercial, industrial and academic missions cross over on a weekly basis. There are over 300 known Israeli companies that have set up operations in Britain, creating wealth and encouraging growth. It is the IBCC, which is often seen as an essential stepping stone for large and small concerns, looking to find overseas partners.
The success stories of the chamber are numerous. Some examples include:
- Several Israeli companies have been introduced to the London 2012 Olympic procedures committee for tenders.
- Over the years, the IBCC has introduced Israeli companies to the UK financial and stock markets, resulting in a respectable number of listings on AIM and on the main market.
- The Chamber has assisted British airlines in entering the Israeli market, handling the civil aviation authorities and raising their profile domestically.
- British accounting and legal offices are now able to work with fuller permission in Israel, as a result of the lobbying of the IBCC.
The Chamber continues to encourage British regional development agencies in introducing themselves to the Israeli business community, through seminars, workshops, and personal meetings. Similarly, specific assistance has been afforded to partner up manufacturers and importers.
