Since 1963, British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) has been providing British businesses with networking, knowledge exchange, trade assistance and support in Malaysia. With 360 top member companies and an outreach of over 190,000 employees, the BMCC offers a wealth of knowledge and expertise in promoting and fostering trade between the UK and Malaysia.

In 2013, the BMCC was selected as UKTI’s local service delivery partner - part of the Overseas Business Network Initiative (OBNI). Under OBNI, the chamber offers a range of practical trade services to UK SMEs and is principally a one-stop shop providing market research and business matching, organising events that can introduce or raise profile of UK brands in Malaysia, guiding through legal and regulatory systems and managing risks.
