INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND LONDON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
From its earliest days the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has been closely involved with international trade and with assisting members with day-to-day trading issues.
In the 1880's the London Chamber was instrumental in obtaining better terms for UK companies from the UK Government and the Suez Canal Company with the help of Count Ferdinand de Lesseps. The initiative brought considerable credit to the newly formed Chamber.
International trade activities continue to play a key role today, in particular the services provided by the Chamber's Export Documents, Customs and Trade Procedures and International Business team and its European Enterprise office.
