Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce, one of the newest and fastest growing Chambers of Commerce in Scotland is pleased to announce the incorporation of Stirling Chamber, which will be launched early next year.

Stirling already has an active Business Panel of over 900 members, and Chairman of the Panel Tony Moulsdale is enthusiastic about the new initiative with Forth Valley Chamber.

“Stirling Business Panel and the Business Advisory Group have been working closely with Forth Valley Chamber for a number of months to ensure that Stirling has a strong identity within the wider Chamber. We have put forward a recommendation on behalf of Stirling businesses and are delighted to be joining the Forth Valley Chamber in 2014. We are looking forward to developing a number of initiatives over the coming year, all of which will benefit businesses throughout the Forth Valley.”

Gordon Bell, Chief Executive of STEP added, “We fully support this development which will deliver a range of new business opportunities in the area.”

Chief Executive of Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce, Laurence Barrett said, “This is great news for the local area, and brings strength to the Chamber movement across the Forth Valley. We already have a number of Stirling businesses as active members and I am sure this number will continue to grow as the Chamber gathers momentum. It is heartening to see different business support agencies coming together to work positively for the business community.”

Commenting on this announcement Cllr. Neil Benny of Stirling Council said “It’s great to see some action on something that has proved elusive for many years. It is very positive news for Stirling businesses and we welcome the partnership approach. I look forward to working alongside the Chamber and its members in the coming months. To have an independent voice for business will help to grow Stirling’s economy and provide the jobs and activities we all want.”
