  There are British Business Groups (BBG) in various cities in India, providing a forum for the business community, British and Indian, who share the desire to promote Indo-British commercial ties, to meet, discuss, and network.

  The BBG in Pune was set up in 2006 with the support of the British High Commission and some dedicated committee members.

  BBG Pune organises events normally on first Tuesday of the month at various locations in Pune( Business Dinners , Networking , Seminars , Round Table Conferences etc ) where prominent British and Indian guest speakers inform participants about current issues and share experiences.  It is also an opportunity to establish business contacts, discuss matters of mutual interests and to generally network. With a number of UK companies visiting Pune with trade delegations, the BBG is the ideal forum for your company to meet and discuss possible ventures.  This is a senior-level organisation for your top management team to be part of and benefit from. 

Our Pune Chapter has approximately 60 Members both Corporate, SMEs and Individuals ranging from the biggies like Tata Motors, JCB, Bharat Forge, the Big 4 as well as Mid-Size Companies / SMEs mainly in the Engineering, IT and Services Sectors.
