The British Business Group has been in existence since 2005 and was operated under the umbrella of the British High Commission (BHC). However, in 2015, a decision was taken that BBG would become an independent entity and run its own affairs as an independent legally registered body. Nevertheless, BHC support and patronage has and will continue as before. BBG was formally registered as a Trust in May 2017 and has a fully operational secretariat in place now. The Trust is run by 7 Board of Trustees, all representing key business sectors in Bangladesh.
