PRAISE has been given to Hampshire Chamber of Commerce at a national business awards ceremony.
The chamber was ‘highly commended’ for its work in the category ‘support for exporting’ at an Enterprising Britain Awards.
The chamber’s deputy chief executive Maureen Frost said: ‘Through various partnership agreements and regional accords, we are actively widening market-reach in Romania for a growing number of Hampshire exporters.
‘We are thrilled to have this work officially recognised at a UK-wide level.’
Hampshire Chamber mainly facilitates help for exporters to Romania through Bridge, the British Romanian International Gateway Exchange.
As well as an online trading platform, the exchange enables firms here to join trade visits, access market intelligence and procurement information and receive other in-country practical support.
Among the companies being supported are Waterlooville-based circuit board specialist Spirit Circuits and the engineering and design firm Portsmouth Aviation.
