Britain's Ambassador to Greece, Kate Smith, said her priorities for this year is to bring more UK companies in Greece for investments and help Greek businesses that want to expand in the British market, during a New Year cake-cutting event at the British-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce on Friday.

"Great to see so many British and Greek businesspeople involved in bilateral trade companies at BHCC pitta cutting. My goal this year to get more UK firms into the growing Greek market, and support Greek companies expand into the UK, working alongside the Chamber," she tweeted.

Founded in 1945, the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce is an independent, autonomous, non-profit organisation, with its main purpose to promote bilateral Greek-British trade and to provide business and investment services for its members. The BHCC represents members’ interests in both Greece and the UK.
