Mission & Purpose

The mission of the German British Forum (GBF) is to deepen and strengthen relations between Germany and the UK, building bridges through dialogue between senior business leaders and engagement with political leaders.

To achieve its purpose the GBF will create a forum where UK / German business leaders can safely explore the business challenges and opportunities of the day and engage with political leaders.

The GBF will work in parallel with the German British Chamber of Industry & Commerce. The GBF’s regular members will comprise senior business leaders with a strong commitment to strengthening Anglo-German relations, as well as political / government leaders with a similar commitment.

The GBF will invite other business leaders or political/public figures to join specific roundtables or discussions where their insight adds value and with a clear understanding of the purpose of the GBF.

The GBF will have an external voice on selective issues with the express agreement of the core members.
