Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe

The Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe, or COBCOE, is the membership organisation for British chambers of commerce and business associations in Europe.

With members in most countries across the region, it represents a unique network of around 12,000 businesses – the only pan-European British business network.  

As an apolitical, independent non-profit, COBCOE is supported by corporate partners – including Global Strategic Partners Jaguar Land Rover and Kompass. 

COBCOE is a driving force for international trade and business because it works with its members to remove barriers and provide practical solutions. It also unites business communities across Europe, delivers thought leadership projects, and represents European business to legislators, officials and negotiators.
