Caribbean-Britain Business Council

The CBBC is a not-for-profit membership organisation which brings together over 100 companies and associations with trade and investment interests in and from the Caribbean.

Caribbean-Britain Business Council

The Caribbean-Britain Business Council (CBBC) seeks to catalyse trade and investment between the UK and the Caribbean and raise a positive profile of the Caribbean amongst the UK private sector and government

The CBBC recognises the important long-term role the private sector has to play in delivering sustainable social and economic development in the Caribbean and supports and promotes increased two way trade and investment activity between the UK and the Caribbean. It makes representations on behalf of business members, provides market information, and organises trade visits, seminars, conferences and networking events. All members of the CBBC also receive a weekly publication, Caribbean Insight, covering economic, political and commercial news from across the Caribbean.

Objectives:

  • To support companies to develop trade and investment between the UK and the Caribbean
  • To facilitate dialogue between its members and others in the UK, the Caribbean and continental Europe to support their commercial and other interests
