British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei

The British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei (BCCTaipei) is a value-adding resource that champions the business and social interests of its members in Taiwan. Made up of large and small corporations, individuals, and overseas associations, BCCTaipei is a strong and cosmopolitan mixture of successful enterprises in diverse industries.
BCCTaipei acts as a key resource for UK companies interested in the Taiwan market by ensuring that businesses, especially SMEs, have a direct line to assistance and networks. They provide landing pad services and offer a united but unbiased commercial perspective on all issues affecting British business interests in Taiwan, and Taiwan business interests in the UK.
BCCTaipei provides a broad range of membership activities and events including business networking opportunities and free for member Talent Development Workshops. BCCTaipei also has a number of Signature Events including the St Andrews Day Ball, Charity Golf Tournament, and the Christmas Charity Auction. We also have a number of specific events, large and small, throughout the year focusing on CSR and Women in Business.
The Chamber is housed inside the British Office and shares a very close relationship to the Foreign Office, Department for International Trade and the British Council, and holds periodic joint events with other foreign chambers.
In conjunction with membership activities, BCCTaipei has donated over 17 million NT dollars to local Taiwanese charities, and has an active program to support the CSR initiatives of its members in Taiwan.

Programme

The third BCCTaipei Young Professionals Mentoring Programme is open for Application. If you are 18-35 years old and looking for guidance, or a senior leader with a passion to leave a legacy, please sign up!


The programme is a 6-month journey with your mentor or mentee. 


At the end of 2019 we initiated our first Young Professionals Mentoring Programme and the response was fantastic. 32 mentors and mentees paired up to spend 6 months of 2020 sharing work and life experiences. In 2021, we had our second annual programme and the results were better than we could have ever imagined. The participants had an amazing time for sure.
