Nigerian British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) is in partnership with COBCOE Connects, as Africa’s first affiliated British chamber of commerce to collaborate with the online business hub. The move is aimed at boosting trade relations and connectivity among member partners and organizations across the globe.
COBCOE Connects is a digital hub and one of the fastest online business matchmaking platforms, which seeks to boost trade relations, using its online platforms in facilitating a business world without barriers.
Akin Olawore, President and Chairman of council of the NBCC stated “with the growth and impact of the digital age, the dynamics of trade engagements has been redefined with businesses been urged to innovate and keep up with global trends, as the online platform has become a key medium of connectivity and business engagements across varying markets worldwide.” “The partnership is part of the policy and engagement efforts by the council in ensuring that partner members are given a platform to network, share ideas and be a part of a global business community.”
The platform ensures that members and partners signed up are connected within a safe hub, with available access to networking and opportunity to grow their businesses through shared ideas. The trade platform also unites about 15 British chambers of commerce in 10 different countries with over 5,757 companies from different sectors and 301 opportunities to do business globally.
The NBCC, through this partnership, would serve as a regulating body in ensuring that its members and organisations signed up under it are genuine, reliable, trustworthy and qualified to be a part of the trade engagements in the platform, designed for ease of business, business development and growth for prospective clients, partners and investors.
The partnership further highlights the policy drive by the current leadership of the NBCC in embracing the digital age to enhance trade relations and subsequent economic growth needed for over 350 corporate members in all sectors of the Nigerian economy.
