Her Majesty The Queen has offered her support to businesses as they reopen from July.

She also praised the contribution of Chambers of Commerce across Scotland, the UK and around the world as they help firms, champion trade and rebuild communities.

In a letter, Her Majesty the Queen, wrote: ‘As many organisations around the country are reopening, I send my warmest best wishes and support to business communities throughout the UK.

‘It gives me great pride to see the contribution you and your members are making to help firms, champion trade and rebuild communities.’

Tim Allan, president of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said: ‘The Queen’s personal message of support recognises the critical role Chambers of Commerce are playing across Scotland, the UK and the world to support business communities through this pandemic.

‘As we look to the future to restart and rebuild our economy and our communities, The Queen’s message will boost the morale and spirit of our members to capture the opportunities that lie ahead.’

The Scottish Chambers of Commerce is Scotland’s largest business network with over 12,000 business members, across a network of 30 regional Chambers of Commerce, providing business support, business intelligence and business connections.
