History of the Chamber

Chile and the UK have a shared history,
connected through time and distance, united by their love for exploration.

In challenging times BritCham has fostered strong bonds,
using technology to bridge gaps and bring us closer together.

We help businesses and people connect, with the common goal of building ties
to help companies reach their highest potential.

Together we weather the challenges of the day to forge a new path,
on the vanguard of collaboration and innovation.

Together we build connections.
