President’s Message

Dear Member,

I am very proud to be the president of the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Brazil – Britcham for the 2024-2026 biennium. I have been a member of Britcham for more than 20 years and I am grateful for the trust of the members and others involved so that we can work together for the continued growth of what represents the main forum of Brazil-UK trade relations.

Ably supported by the Administrative Council, the Presidents of our Branches, our National Executive Committee and Thematic Committees, who are all focused on serving Britcham and building an ever-better Chamber, the executive team has been deploying all its experience and energy to create additional value for our members. This means we continue with the objective of strengthening the work we do at Britcham, invest in Government Relations and Advocacy issues, take an ever more professional approach to Institutional Communications, Events and media exposure for Britcham and its leadership.

Britcham has been very active organising a broad range of in-person and online events, meetings and technical visits addressing significant sector and transversal issues and I would like to thank our members and partners for taking such an active role in our activities. We have made the Chamber a stronger platform with greater relevance to the Brazil-UK business and wider community.

I am proud to be able to celebrate Britcham’s achievements and successes during the last biennium, period in which I occupied the position of vice-president of the Administrative Council and member of the Advocacy Consultative Commission, while reiterating our mission to promote bilateral trade between Brazil and the UK and help create diverse, inclusive, prosperous and sustainable business and societal spaces that serve our members and grow trade, industry, services and investment in our country.

I count on your support.

Warmest regards,

Fabio Caldas
