The partnership, Aikman says, will allow the Chamber to expand its reach across the country.

“They will also assist the BCCI secretariat with logistical support for regional meetings. As I said, we are trying to expand our reach throughout the country. The DFC will help to disseminate Chamber membership and service promotional material through its offices countrywide and we will link to the website in addition to placing our logo and our banner at DFC events. So we see this as a mutually beneficial arrangement.”


Natalie Goff, General Manager, Development Finance Corporation

“You may ask why are we doing all this…as you all know DFC is primarily a business bank and so we are trying to develop business to really bring business up to what we are saying—if not first world, at least developing world standards. And in terms of ensuring they have audited financial statements because all of these things lower the risks in terms of better interest rates and things like that. So with the Chamber, we can partner to improve, or developing business in this area is for the best interest of our business customers.”


The MOU signed today is the second such agreement the Chamber of Commerce has entered into with other partner agencies.  The first was signed with the Small Business Development Center, a unit of BELTRAIDE.
