Overview 

The Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce is the foremost bilateral chamber in Nigeria and has been in the vanguard of promoting Anglo- Nigeria trade relations. Its main objective has been the promotion of trade and investment between Nigeria and Britain since our inception in 1977. We currently have about 400 members spanning all sectors of the economy made up of Nigerian and British business people. While our head office is in Lagos, we maintain an NBCC-UK Network in London and are developing a network of local branches within Nigeria.

We have been in the vanguard of promoting Anglo-Nigeria trade relations. We create value for our members continuously and facilitate business-to-business relationships, promote Nigerian export to the UK and inflow of capital and investment into Nigeria. In 2014 the NBCC established a private sector export initiative called EXPORT NIGERIA. The initiative will seek to galvanize private sector interests in export, strengthen the capacity of our members involved in the Export trade, and equip them with the wherewithal for export. The NBCC expects to partner with the private sector and relevant agencies of government in the process

The services we offer to our members include the organization of trade missions into the two countries, sponsorship of trainings, conferences and seminars addressed by leading authorities in different fields, affording members and non-members a platform for the discussion of topical issues affecting the economy in general and Nigerian-British trade in particular. We also partner with Nigerian organizations like Nigerian Export Promotion Council and British ones like the UKTI, British Council and other corporates in the execution of their corporate objectives.

NBCC is part of the International UK Business Network, a global network of the British Chambers of Commerce with branches all over the world. We are active at international fora of British Chambers of Commerce and are therefore able to make direct business connections or introductions globally. Under an agreement with the UKTI, the NBCC has been designated a Chamber to take over and provide certain services presently undertaken by the UKTI for visiting UK businessmen.
