Greetings to you all.
Firstly I would like to thank all the members for giving me the responsibility of the editorial of Belgaum chamber News Letter. I will definitely put in all my efforts in making the News Lettermore informative & invoke interest among all the readers.
I pray to All-Mighty that May this Diwali lighten up your lives with all the success & happiness & improve your businesses which was on the back foot due to the Pandemic. Though the businesses have affected but not our hopes to bounce back &
fight against the disease & put our lives back on track towards our development as well as the development of our Belagavi City.
I also welcome any suggestions & write ups in improving our News Letter. I am sure with your support we can do wonders in the betterment of our Business Community
FROM THE DESK OF PRESIDENT
From the Desk of President...
I could not be more honored to serve as President & Chair of the Belgaum Chamber of Commerce & Industries during these challenging times. The Chamber has a long history of important accomplishments in our community dating back many years. I believe that this year is going to be one of those years as our business community recovers, modernizes, and refocuses to meet the needs of our diverse, fast-growing, and ever changing community post-COVID.
What's on the Chamber's Roadmap?
In these last 18 months, we have shifted our focus to helping Chamber Members (and our local business community in general) get through the many challenges and difficulties faced during the 2020 & 2021 pandemic & economic crisis. As we continue to see restrictions lifting and people getting back to work, I look forward to pushing ahead with our goals to help drive the economic recovery for our community and to make the Chamber an effective convener, collaborator and community
builder within our regional business eco-system. There are many local organizations, businesses, associations and affiliations doing great things locally and our Chamber wants to work with those who are already working hard to make our community stronger.
We have a very talented, experienced, diverse and engaged Board of Directors who shares this vision. With all the changes we all have faced in 2020 & 2021, expect to see some exciting changes to Chamber programming and events! In addition to our all volunteer Board of Directors, we have paid staff to better help us achieve our goals more effectively and efficiently help us achieve our goals more effectively and efficiently. We are also starting to see an increase in new memberships/renewals and I believe the economic recovery for Belagavi businesses will be sooner rather than later. We Want to Hear From You We especially welcome those of you who may not have found value in the Chamber in the past to take a moment to re-introduce yourself to what this new Chamber can do for you. Our Chamber will educate, communicate and advocate on behalf of the interests of business, small and large, whether member or not – but we are confident you will want to become a member
when you see the direction we are headed. We know that our effectiveness in helping your business succeed is not based on us telling you what you need, but rather you telling us what you need so that we can work together in finding the best solutions. I know I can speak for the rest of the Board of Directors when I say that we want to hear from you about what is important to
your business and how the Chamber can help you achieve success. Here at the Belgaum Chamber of Commerce & Industries, we invite all business owners to take part so we can achieve success together as a community, and we look forward to furthering our common goals. About the Belgaum Chamber of Commerce & Industries The Belgaum Chamber of Commerce & Industries is comprised of our member businesses, an all-volunteer Board of Directors, and staff. We are committed to introducing and promoting member businesses and raising their profiles in Belagavi and surrounding areas. Our Mission & Vision The Belgaum Chamber of Commerce & Industries is organized to preserve the competitive enterprise system
of business; to help ensure business and community growth and development; and to develop civic, social, and cultural programs that will enhance the values of our community.
There are several ways we are doing this. One of the most practical opportunities we have is by helping our chamber members and local businesses get more marketing opportunities in our surrounding areas as well as for travelers visiting Belagavi by conducting a Mega Event to showcase on a large platform of trade & industrial Expo which we are conducting in the month
of January 2022. We will also be increasing the opportunities for National & International companies to offer their services and expertise. We must develop a knowledge based economy to be globally competitive, to be an export – driven economy to attract foreign investments. In Closing The ultimate goal will be to approach Central & State governments and suggest a new framework – a framework that is free of emotional rhetoric, that will allow our companies & Business establishments to get
on with the business of growing our economy and creating jobs because, make no mistake, it is business that create jobs, What we need is for our leaders to create policy, legislation and regulations which facilitate the latter. The chamber will and must be measured by providing one stop facilities for small & Large businesses and continue to act as a prodder for growth initiatives in the national economy.
I am tremendously excited about my future in the chamber and look forward to working more closely with
you all in the months.
