As a first step in taking forward this MoU, the BPA Secretariat will operate from the CCC Secretariat and the two organizations will work together to offer better coordinated services to Regional Chambers.

CCC will assist BPA by taking on the responsibility of coordinating the network.

The CCC apprised the members of the BPA of the wide range of services that can be accessed through the CCC for business development and invited the BPA members to make full use of the CCC services.
