Greater Manchester Chamber

Greater Manchester Chamber held its first Asian Business Development Network event on Monday (October 9th) at Elliot House.

Reet Dhallu, Regional Membership Manager at the Chamber, said: “Over 36 businesses attended the event to network and hear more about what we want to achieve with the network.

“This is the first time that the Chamber has put on an event like this, which is all about engaging with the Asian business community and providing a platform for your business to connect with other Asian or non-Asian business within Greater Manchester and further field.

“We are also dedicated to communicating your business voice via a number of channels. As the largest chamber of commerce, with over 4,800 members, it’s hugely important to us to enhance diversity with our membership base.

“The network isn’t just for Asian businesses though; it is also for non-Asian businesses who are looking to work with Asian businesses.”

Another event is planned to take place in December with more to follow next year.

Raam Shanker, from Equitus Engineering, said: “The Asian Business Development Network launch is a welcome initiative by the Chamber, given the number of Asian origin businesses operating out of Greater Manchester, and it shows that diversity and representation are high on the agenda.

“The hope is that this will provide a platform for businesses like Equitus Engineering to gain a bit more visibility, and highlight the contributions the Asian community is making to the economy and society.”
