Chambers of Commerce have attracted relatively little interest in Britain as a subject for study. This could be the result of their apparently limited influence in British economic affairs and development. The aim of this article is to survey briefly the functions and roles of British Chambers of Commerce within their status as private organisations, stressing the benefits and limitations of such an arrangement and then to contrast them with the advantages and inherent problems experienced by many continental Chambers which operate under public law status.
