Suffolk Chamber Business Plan

Suffolk Chamber of Commerce has launched its 2018/20 Business Plan.

This Plan provides the key compass directions for Suffolk Chamber’s many activities for both its members and the wider business community over the three years to 2020.

This 2018/20 Plan focususes upon our four key ‘pillars’:

  • Policy, lobbying and representation

  • Business support and advice

  • International trade

  • Skills agenda

The 2018/20 Business Plan is also informed by the very many macro-factors that are either already having an impact or are likely to do so on Suffolk Chamber’s business model and indeed on its membership. These include Brexit, the increased focus on international trade, the emerging Government Industrial Strategy and the future of devolution, as well as the increasing number of opportunities for private and public sector partnership working involving the Chamber.

Underpinning this Plan is a careful balancing act aimed at ensuring that the business’s resources, staffing numbers and expertise are properly aligned to take maximum advantage of what lies ahead, whilst balancing that against the need for members to be able to extract maximum value from their membership.

Please do take a moment to look at our summarised 2018/20 Business Plan. It is, after all, your plan for your Chamber. If you have any questions on the plan, please do not hesitate to contact me.
