About Us

The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai is a dynamic network of international businesses with a common interest in China. Our members are the pulse of our organisation — we advocate best practice; we share knowledge; and we build trusted and long-lasting friendships.

Let’s connect.

Working with purpose

Our purpose is to make connections. Connections that open opportunity, empower businesses and unite our community in China.

Members from all over the world join BritCham Shanghai to gain access to China’s most dynamic trading hub, Shanghai. With over 250 member companies already operating in China, we provide the best possible on-the-ground intelligence for companies and brands hoping to grow in China.

The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai was formed by, and is operated in, strict accordance to its Constitution. The Constitution was last amended on 13 January 2023 by the Chamber’s Executive Committee.
