THE TORQUAY Chamber of Commerce has affiliated with the Devon Chamber Commerce
The move, which was confirmed last week, was taken to give the businesses in Torbay more help in making sure that they know what is going on business-wise from Central Government.
Susie Colley, Chairman of the Torquay Chamber of Commerce, said: “We need support from the Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce as they get information directly from London. This affiliation will help the businesses in the Bay to be able find out about what the movers and shakers in the business world will be doing, rather than sitting on the outside.”
The Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce have access to the Government through their relationship with the British Chambers of Commerce, enabling them to add weight to our local and regional lobbying activity, and it is this increase lobbying power that has prompted the affiliation.
