Hampshire Chamber of Commerce Join Southampton 2025 Gateway Club


7 Feb, 2022

Hampshire Chamber of Commerce are the latest member to join Southampton 2025’s Gateway Club, a business membership community created to support Southampton’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2025.

Hampshire Chamber of Commerce provides leadership and support to the Hampshire business community. They are a membership organisation, owned and managed by local businesses with a goal to protect and promote business interests.

As an influential and independent membership organisation, owned and managed by local businesses, the Chamber plays an important role in promoting business links and collaborations through its impactful programme of networking events, activities and portfolio of products and services.

Currently, Hampshire Chamber of Commerce is conducting a six-month consultation with its members and local stakeholders to foster stronger relations and business links with the region’s growing South Asian business community.

The purpose of formulating a refreshed strategy and action plan is to connect, engage and support the broad range of South Asian businesses and entrepreneurs operating in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Isle of Wight. From retail and pharmaceuticals to real estate and manufacturing businesses, the region has many successful businesses of all sizes, which are making a positive contribution to the Solent region.

Led by Lakbir Singh and Peter Taylor, this timely consultation will comprise a series of meetings, roundtable discussions and electronic questionnaires with stakeholders to identify any barriers that may prevent these communities in fully engaging with other peer businesses and organisations.
