Our History

The BBG was founded as an informal forum to enable British companies to promote and support their collective interest and to stimulate wider recognition of the UK contribution to the development of Bangladesh. At its inception in 2005 the BBG was part of the British High Commission (BHC) and for operational purposes sat within its commercial section. It was later recognised that there were advantages if the BBG operated independently from the BHC, like other business chambers in Bangladesh, and in 2017 it became fully independent. The BBG was launched as a Trust at a ceremony on 8 April 2018 at the Residence of the British High Commissioner, HE Alison Blake, and the Board of Trustees..
