In a special article for the Lochaber Times, the Lochaber Chamber of Commerce tells how they and the wider chamber of commerce network is gearing up to help businesses impacted by the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

‘Businesses across Lochaber are already feeling the pain of the coronavirus and there is every sign this is only the beginning of hard months ahead.

Faced with such a rapidly changing situation, it’s incredibly difficult for businesses to adapt to the new and evolving circumstances.

The team at Lochaber Chamber of Commerce is determined to do everything we can to help speak up for the needs of business and provide practical assistance to help support our economy and community.

As part of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce network, we are part of the biggest business community in Scotland, made up of 29 chambers representing the interests of more than 12,500 businesses.

There’s strength in numbers at times of crisis and the Scottish Chambers of Commerce network is fighting hard for the interests of businesses throughout the country.

Scottish Chambers of Commerce is calling on Scottish Government, UK Government and world leaders to urgently agree on a comprehensive global action plan to address the escalating COVID-19 outbreak and restore confidence and stability to the global economy.

Scottish Chambers of Commerce is actively involved in advising and reporting to government about the needs of the Scottish business community and to lobby for the support businesses need to survive
in these tough times and be ready to thrive again when the situation improves.

On Tuesday, the Scottish Chambers of Commerce set up a business information hub to help businesses find useful information quickly.

The hub is updated daily and includes information on business support and access to finance. You can access this through www.scottishchambers.org.uk
