Essex Chambers and ETK Group launch new “Chamber Africa Specialist and Advice Services”

Essex Chambers of Commerce and long standing Chamber members, ETK Group will bring businesses across the county support and live business opportunities in Africa. ETK Consulting, a subsidiary of the ETK Group, will now provide the ‘Chamber Africa Specialists’ benefit which consists of two new Chamber services. With over 6 years’ experience assisting both British and African companies and offices both here and across Africa, they are well placed to do so.

The first new Chamber Service on offer is an ‘Africa Advice Service’ that will help UK businesses navigate the continent, assist with projects and work through the regulatory and cultural issues to eliminate trade barriers. Using their offices across this vast continent, combined with their personal and professional experience, ETK are the people to advise businesses on every aspect of trading in this huge part of the world.

The second Chamber Service is ‘AfriLink’, an African opportunities introductory service. This member’s only service will offer live African business opportunities that you will not find elsewhere and with ETK mediating, business will be kept involved and up-to-date.

Kris Wilson, Manager of International Trade at the Essex Chambers said “With the uncertainty surrounding trade and with BREXIT looming, we are eager to highlight to our customers the immense trading opportunities available across the globe. The idea of both of these new services is to provide support to businesses no matter what stage they are at in terms of exporting to Africa. Combined with our other benefits and services businesses have a ‘one stop shop’ in trading with Africa.”
