The Chamber of Commerce

Paul Britton
Chief Executive

We work alongside the Department for International Trade (DIT), the regions Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), Local Authorities and professional service providers to support foreign direct investment (FDI) into the Thames Valley.

In 2016/17 we were proud to record – once again - one of the highest number of FDI projects recorded entering the Thames Valley. The region is one of the most competitive in Europe, and has consistently been one of the UK’s most successful at attracting inward investment. A high proportion of these investors were strongly supported by the Chamber.
