Black Country Chamber of Commerce Welcomes Bulgarian Delegation

IMG 6641Last week, the Black Country Chamber of Commerce welcomed representatives from the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as part of a three-day international exchange programme with the City of Wolverhampton Council and Access to Business.

The primary aim of the visit was to share best practice between the two business support organisations, whilst exploring ways they can work collaboratively in the future and harness mutually beneficial relations in the face of Brexit.

The 10 Bulgarian delegates heard presentations on the products and services that the Black Country Chamber provides to businesses across the region, including tailored packages for start-up businesses within their first 2 years of trading through to sector-specific support for high-value strategic organisations via The Platinum Groups.

In addition, Stefan Szabo, Head of International Trade at the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, offered insight into the ways that the Chamber, working in partnership with the Department for International Trade, is able to help businesses to export their goods and services into overseas markets. This presentation was further bolstered by recent Chamber members, Safejawz, who provided an industry focused case study on the ways that the Black Country Chamber has helped to enhance the growth of their business, which has seen them expand into territories such as Canada and Scandinavia.

Corin Crane, Chief Executive of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, commented: “We were delighted to welcome delegates from the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry as part of an international exchange programme.

“With Brexit negotiations underway, it is vitally important that we work collaboratively with our colleagues overseas, sharing best practice and exchanging ideas, so that Black Country businesses can be instilled with the confidence they need to realise their potential and optimise the economic growth of the region.”
