We are pleased to announce that The Yorkshire Society has entered into a reciprocal arrangement with the British American Business Council in Texas.

The BABC is the largest transatlantic business network with over 2,000 member companies and 22 chapters across North America and the UK, in London and Manchester.

Like The Yorkshire Society, BABC Texas is a not-for-profit organisation committed to helping its members prosper and together we want to create economic benefits on both sides of the Atlantic for our respective memberships.

Texas and Yorkshire have a lot in common. Both enjoy large geographic size in their respective countries, both populations have a similar independent and unique character and both have enormous economic potential.

We both believe that by growing links and contacts, establishing bridges and developing business relationships we can create benefits for our individual corporate members and respective economic regions as a whole. For sure, Yorkshire is an ideal location for inward investment and an ideal entry point for the UK market in addition to being a significant market in its own right.

Kay Thomson, CEO of BABC Texas said “The British American Business Council of Texas is delighted to formalize an agreement with The Yorkshire Society as both organizations grow their memberships and recognize the importance and reach of each other’s economies. In connecting organizations and representatives from our respective regions, we hope to develop relationships, forge alliances and grow trade“.

Whilst Geoff Walsh, deputy Chair of The Yorkshire Society added “The Society is reaching out to the world to let everyone know what Yorkshire has to offer. This arrangement with BABC Texas is the first in series of similar international relationships, for a cultural or economic benefit, that we have in the pipeline now”.

The first thing on the agenda of the two organisations is an online presentation to each other’s members and the wider business community to highlight the potential of each other’s markets, what specific business opportunities exist and where areas for cooperation can be found.

The aim of The Yorkshire Society has always been to celebrate and promote everything that’s great about Yorkshire. Now we are doing it around the world too.

Executive Director, BABC Texas
