History of BECC
The British-Estonian Chamber of Commerce (BECC) was founded in 1996 as the British-Estonian Business Forum. The name was changed to Chamber of Commerce in November 1999.
The Chamber is run by the Management Team and a board consisting of nine members, who come from various backgrounds of businesses and can therefore provide BECC with a wide range of knowledge, especially for a newcomer to Estonia.
