About us

British-Slovenian Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) is a non-governmental, bi-lateral British-Slovenian chamber, established to promote trade and investment between the two countries. Since 2015, we have connected more than 2,200 British and Slovenian companies, resulting in more than €1 billion worth of trade in 2018. The BSCC provides a platform for effective business networking, giving access to our network of around 100 members, as well as to the network of 53 Chambers of Commerce in the UK, which bring together more than 104,000 companies.

Our members and partners value our professional attitude and our ability to understand their needs. We are seen as very responsive and helpful in providing information and contacts that can be beneficial when entering new markets.

Our chamber was awarded Best Chamber of the Year in 2018 by the Council of the British Chambers of Commerce in Europe. The award was based on our excellence and innovation in events, organisation of member related activities and overachievement of our goals in trade.

History

The British-Slovenian Chamber of Commerce was officially established in 2008.

HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, who travels extensively promoting United Kingdom and its business, visited Slovenia in mid-2007 in his role as the UK’s Special Representative for International Trade & Investment.

His Royal Highness recommended that it would be valuable to have a British Chamber of Commerce in Slovenia, with the British Ambassador’s agreement and the assistance and energy of the President of COBCOE, Mr. Howard Rosen. Mr. Rosen again visited Slovenia in November 2007 to attend a meeting with possible representatives of a British Chamber of Commerce. The lunch at the British Ambassador's residence was also attended by other British business people based in Slovenia, Slovenian citizens representing British companies in Slovenia, and Slovenian companies in the UK.

Based on this inaugural meeting, a further meeting was held at the British Embassy in Ljubljana in late November 2007. At this meeting, the representatives present appointed Kevin Morrison, Stephen Fish and David Smith to start the establishment process. The intensive legal work to establish the BSCC began with the dedicated support of the Law Firm Senica and other founding members: British American Tobacco, Ernst & Young d.o.o., Kevin Morrison s.p., M tours Bled, Relokacije d.o.o. and Taxgroup d.o.o.
