COBCOE is the independent, not-for-profit organisation representing British chambers of commerce and business associations throughout Europe. Acting as an umbrella organisation, we work with our members to advance international trade and business.

COBCOE was founded, and continues to operate, with a clear aim: to protect and promote the collective interests of our members, and their business members, through united representation, cooperation and trade stimulation.

Our core membership of British chambers of commerce and business associations in 35 European countries represents around 12,000 business members. A further 50 chambers of commerce and similar organisations based in the UK and around the world are affiliates.

We offer a platform for international trade and investment support, commercial services and best practice in business. Our global network provides access to local market expertise and assists in building the local relationships and stakeholder engagement that help businesses to succeed. 

COBCOE is an incorporated company limited by guarantee.
