  • Britcham advises its associates on the evolution of new strategies following six months with the new Administrative Council

    Bilateral Relations between Brazil and the United Kingdom
    The Britcham chairman, Francisco Itzaina, CBE, had the honour of taking part in meetings to strengthen bilateral relations between Brazil and the United Kingdom. 
    He took part at an event called "British Brazilian Conversa", held in Cambridge between 5th and 7th September. The meeting was organised by Alan Charlton, the former ambassador of the United Kingdom in Brazil, and involved the participation of 80 top-ranking guests from both countries with direct interests in developing bilateral trade. Among the guests were Luciano Coutinho, president of the National Economic and Social Development Bank (BNDES), British Minister, Kenneth Clarke, Members of Parliament, the National Confederation of Industry (CNI) president and current British and Brazilian ambassadors. 
    On the 16th of this month, Francisco gave a talk on “The prospects for Brazil over the next 10 years” at Canning House in London (Canning House is a non-political and non-profit making organisation, founded in 1943, to encourage understanding between the British, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American community).  Our chairman is fully-committed to a connection between both countries and focused on Britcham’s mission of being a reference in the United Kingdom/Brazil business community to develop the relationship, bilateral trade, investments and services.

    Committees and Working Groups
    Vinicius Nobre, the Academic Manager at Cultura Inglesa São Paulo and Leader of the Education & Training Group at Britcham São Paulo, is organising this working group’s activities and bringing together professionals who are interested in assisting with this challenge. The first meeting took place recently, with representatives from associate companies, the Manchester Business School and VR Consulting. The aim is to attract new members who are interested in holding monthly meetings (on the last Thursday of every month) in order to discuss and plan actions relevant to the Education and Training Group. The group has already planned the inaugural event, which will take place on 22nd October at the Brazilian British Centre and discuss issues related to Transnational Education. 

    New Members - 30% of selected guests are in contact with Britcham

    Britcham is striving to expand its associate base in order to generate new business opportunities and strengthen bilateral relations between Brazil and the United Kingdom. 
    We sent more than 200 membership invitations and have received replies from 30% of the selected contacts. Follow-up actions are continuing through executives from British groups in Brazil and Brazilian companies which are important in sustaining relations between the United Kingdom and Brazil. Our expectation is that membership continues to grow, which will strengthen the Chamber in supporting issues that are of interest to our members and will be discussed with stakeholders.


    Britcham Brazil is finalising the accreditation process and awaits the next steps
    With great satisfaction, we report that the first phase of Britcham Brazil’s accreditation has been finalised.  We are awaiting contact from the BCC / Accreditation Board in order to commence the next phase.
