Being in business is challenging.
And these days the challenges are greater than ever.
Whether you are on your own, in a small team or having to shoulder the responsibilities of a sizeable business, life could hardly be tougher than it is today.
Christchurch Chamber of Trade and Commerce is an association of local businesses whose purpose is to support one another and represent our combined interests in the community.
We have members from across the spectrum of business. Sole traders, partnerships, small to large companies covering retail, service, hospitality and manufacturing industries, and everything in between.
Although some of us may be in competition, the shared problems we face give us much in common and there are many ways we can help each other.
