CEO Update July 2024

8th July 2024

As we head into the heart of summer, I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on some exciting news and events from the Fife Chamber of Commerce.

International Trade

We know International Trade documentation is a tricky process, which is why we have two members of staff who focus on this area: Emma Dunlop has completed her Certificate of Origin training which equips her with the knowledge and skills to navigate the process of obtaining and using Certificates of Origin and Ellesse Kernaghan is currently undertaking her training. We aim to make the process as easy as possible to navigate for our members.


This week we’re delighted to have our first collaboration with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce at the always popular speed networking. Joint Event with Edinburgh Chamber (Speed Networking)
