Thought Leadership

We ensure continuous support for the development of businesses by creating and disseminating cross-industry best practices and critical knowledge, and help members understand and keep abreast of changing economic conditions, the regulatory and taxation environment, and rapid technological change. Operating through 15 Expert Committees representing all industry and infrastructure sectors, we regularly organize workshops, seminars, and site visits that are well-attended and well-received. Members get special concessions on delegate fees where applicable. Be sure to register early!

Industry Voice-Business Support and Advocacy

We provide strong interface with the Union and State Governments in the formulation of industrial policy, sector specific schemes and policies, the development of critical infrastructure in the city and the state including land and energy, and do our best to ensure an industry-friendly regulatory and taxation framework. We also provide necessary policy and institutional support to the Government in developing these policies, with industry expertise, cutting edge research and incisive analysis. We regularly send out representations on both urgent and long standing issues. With a powerful voice in the Government, and a credibility built over several decades, we make sure Industry's representations are heard by the Government.

BCIC has developed excellent and extensive contacts with Foreign Embassies and Trade Offices in Bangalore and counterpart associations in other countries. We facilitate regular interaction with these offices, to enable members to explore opportunities in other countries and ensure smooth and trouble free operations overseas.
